The first foxglove to bloom in the spring!

Just like the dog it’s named after, Dalmatian Purple Foxglove is known for its spots. Each individual rose-purple flared flower has dozens of dark freckles in its throat. These flowers line tall, erect spikes by the dozens. The more of these you plant, the more flower-power you get!
The 2’ tall plants are very architectural and give great structure along a fence or at the middle of a border. These beauties are synonymous with cottage gardens in Europe and America. They look great in these mixed borders, but try them in mass around a tree for a striking modern look.

Perfect cut flowers, it only takes a few to fill a vase with long-lasting blooms.

Foxgloves are biennial, so let the seeds fall and enjoy them year after year.

As pretty as they are in groups and borders, they also excel in large containers. Plant them with white flowers for a formal look or with yellows and pinks for an old-fashioned feel.

However you plant them, you will enjoy these early bloomers all season long!

* Rose-purple flowers
* Great cuts
* Deer and rabbit resistant
* Attracts birds and butterflies
