Honeysucklegold's Garden

Tropical foxglove

Species: Digiplexis Illumination Apricot.

Just listing plants so I don't forget! Photo as and when.

Upright clump forming deciduous perennial. Moist or well drained soil in full sun or part shade. H & S: 90cm x 45cm.

Impulse buy for the stunning colour. On reading on the web it's half-hardy. The label gives a snowflake with three sections underneath - Mild, Normal,Cold, with a tick in the mild. Useless piece of information - mild to whom, cold which part of the UK? Hopefully it will survive if I remember to molly-coddle it with some covering!
