Digitalis purpurea 'Dalmatian Rose'

 

Foxglove 'Dalmatian Rose'

This is a unique selection of Foxglove, flowering well even the first year. It forms a low rosette of green leaves, with tall spikes of deep lavender-purple bells, each spotted inside with maroon purple. Deadhead first-year blooms by trimming back the spent flower stems to base of the plant, to encourage overwintering and a second year of bloom.
