Buy Foxglove ‘Illumination Pink’ – Hardy Perennial
from Thompson and Morgan

This remarkable new digitalis variety has something of a tropical appearance, being bred from the Canary Island Foxglove (Isoplexis). It has a very long flowering season as being sterile it does not pour energy into setting seed. Excellent for summer perennial borders, although it will grow in partial shade, it grows typically to around 36″ in height with a spread of half that, and being a true perennial it won’t need replacing every couple of years.
