This is a unique selection of Foxglove, bearing tall spikes of soft lavender-mauve bells, each spotted inside with maroon purple. Buds begin a creamy-yellow colour. Unlike other types, ‘Camelot’ Foxgloves flower in both the first and second year before eventually setting seed and dying. Deadhead first-year blooms to encourage overwintering. These perform best in a rich, moist soil. Allow plants to form seed in the second year and they may self-sow to produce future generations. New seedlings that appear can be easily moved in their first season, while still small.
