USDA Zone: 4-9

Often described as being “stately” when in bloom, Foxgloves produce enormous spires of large, dangling bells. Plants form a low rosette of coarse, hairy leaves in the first year, bursting into flower during the second summer. This hybrid has flowers in a bright rose-pink shade. Usually lives 2 to 4 years, more of a perennial in habit than the Common Foxglove selections. Any seedlings that appear can be easily moved in their first season, while still small. At flowering time, plants may need to be staked. CAUTION: Toxic if eaten.
