Digitalis ferruginea


Availability : Available

Description :

Native to south-east Europe (Caucasus, Balkans, Turkey and Hungary) Digitalis ferruginea or rusty foxglove is distinguishable from its congeners by its bright, dark green, lance-shaped leaves and early summer flowering of the most spectacular golden-brown trumpets with red-brown veins borne on long spikes of 120 cm in height.

Foxgloves are excellent for planting under trees or in woods and go elegantly with the spread of ferns and other partial shade varieties. Helleborus, Pulmonaria, Brunnera, Luzula nivea, Luzula sylvatica 'Aura', Anemone sylvestris, etc.

Consult our range of perennials for partial shade.

Growing care: mulch generously at the beginning of spring, cut the dried flower stems right back to promote new shoots which can be replanted later. Keep the soil moist during the summer.

Digitalis ferruginea is a biennial or ephemeral perennial and when planted in the right growing conditions, its will reseed itself and become naturalised.
