Burgundy Speckles Around the Stalk
Foxglove Camelot Rose, Digitalis purpurea 'Camelot Rose', is a new hybrid foxflove with large pendulous rose-pink flowers with dark burgundy speckles.
The 'Camelot' series forms flowers all the way around the sturdy flowers stalks, instead of just on one side!
Numerous secondary flower spikes extend the bloom time well into summer if plants are deadheaded.
When not in bloom, enjoy the large rosettes of fuzzy green leaves.
Digitalis should be planted in full sun but will tolerate morning shade.
It blooms early to mid summer. In most climates, partial shade is best, though it will grow in full sun in northern regions.
Try planting it in woodland gardens, as a border plant or for cut-flowers. Remember to leave some dead flower stalks to self sow for future flowers. Being a major attraction to bees, butterflies and birds, it is a must in any garden. (All parts of Digitals are poisonous if ingested and can be invasive).
