  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: June to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A interesting and attractive new foxglove that is more reliably perennial than many other foxgloves. It also tends to produce a multi-stemmed flower spike, so it puts on a really generous display in early summer, and then often goes on to produce a smaller flush later on in the year. The flower's colouring is different too - being coppery yellow, and looking as though it has been dusted with cinnamon.

    These plants are perennial, but do tend to be rather short-lived.

  • Garden care: Ensure that the soil is kept moist in summer. After flowering cut back the flowered spikes to encourage more sideshoots. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted organic matter around the plant in early spring.
  • CAUTION toxic if eaten
