Digitalis ‘Candy Mountain’ A worthy foxglove with its tubular flowers facing up to your sunshine gaze. This is the unique quality about the ‘Candy Mountain’ group. We are adding Candy Mountain Peach and White to your gardens visual pleasure. The Candy Mountains are compact biannual. Biannual as you will remember, are plants that have a foliage growing year then the next year is their flower blooming year, so they take two years to go through a cycle to bloom. We started ours early and have kept them cold in the 38 to 45. They rise to 3-4′ tall.
We have added several more foxglove to our listing, Digitalis Polka Dot Pippa with coral outer blooms and an apricot center and Princess with large rose pink blooms. Digitalis Dalmatian Mix, and solid colors Purple and White.
Sound to me like you need to reinvent your cottage garden idea and fit all foxglove into it. Look for blooms from may through summer. Dead head to get reblooming, Digitalsis form green foliage rosettes at the base of their tall colorful spikes.
One planting idea is to place clusters of foxglove in between open areas in the shrubbery around your house. Place some summer color around.
Happy planting spring is around the corner…..
