Digitalis parviflora 'Milk Chocolate'


Digitalis parviflora 'Milk Chocolate' (Digitalis parviflora (Foxglove))

For my records
This plant did have 5 flower spikes - all except this one spike have suffered (?) the same as the one behind this.

Thank you ladies.....i like it too :)
Can either of you confirm biennial or perennial?

20 Jul, 2012

 

Mine claimed to be perennial Scottish.

So did mine but i noticed it popped up under the goypedia for biennials on main page.

Is this what is commonly called Rusty Foxgloves? It's unusual and very striking. Must get this.

Mine grows like a perennial also.Sometimes forget where it is planted and suddenly there is life!

Thanks Oji and Meadowland...Never heard of Rusty Foxgloves Oji - but have just googled....
Rusty Foxgloves are Digitalis Ferruginea - I presume the FERRU will come from the same root as Ferrous (iron) and this is Digitalis Parviflora - Parvi means small (I think). Funny how some things get their names isn't it :))
Goodness me, that took me back 30 years to my latin classes at school. My latin teacher would have been pleased - I was so disruptive in his class he refused to mark my 2nd year exam!!!!
