Digitalis ferruginea (Digitalis ferruginea (Rusty foxglove))

Very easily grown from seed. One of the very best Digitalis.

Simbad - are they biennial? There is a lot of conflicting info on that point.

Amy - the eastern European/Mediterranean Digitalis species are well worth seeking out.

I saw one the other day Keith but am very reluctant to buy anything at the moment as plans are being submitted to build next to us ,if we hate it we may have to think about moving :o(

Buy the seed and toss them down where you want them?

You know I wondered that mine did die after flowering, yet Siris has had one in her garden for years, I ll see how these go and collect seed just in case .

If any of you ladies are interested I've collected seed from my completely pure white Foxglove. I can't guarantee that they'll come true but it is the only Foxglove I had and there are none next door in either direction.

Yes please Meanie I would love some....

I've got lots of leaves on mine but not a flower in site. I save seed (got a spare fridge in garage full of seed which will probably outlive me!) so might put a few in soon. When I bought this originally they called it the chocolate foxglove.
