Is the foliage really so silvery? Unusual.

Yes, it is, Siris, and furry, too! I love it. :-))

Looks more like verbascum foliage, had to look it up to see if it was a biennial, yes, purpurea species, pity, but pretty.

Where did you find it - it's not listed on Plant Finder. I have just the place for this one!

11 May, 2016

 

Andrew, I found the information on a French Nursery, in French. Could not find on a uk site.

Same as me then Sue. It's not on EBAY or Amazon either.

Will have to ask Spritzhenry where she bought it.

12 May, 2016

 

Sbg - you may be right. There was one at Shepton Mallet on 8th May.

Isnt that beautiful........

12 May, 2016

 

No, I got it at Otter Nurseries in Ottery St Mary (Devon). They have almost run out now, apparently. Sorry!

14 May, 2016

 

I'm not surprise they have almost run out. It's a 'must have'

14 May, 2016

 

Update - as of this morning, Otter Nurseries only had one plants left. The manager brought them back from a visit to Portugal.

Ah, that's interesting, Andrew!

15 May, 2016

 

Lovely plant! I, too, though looking at the foliage, thought it was a Verbascum! Shame I don't have room on my balcony for such a beautiful plant!

17 May, 2016

 

So you managed to buy it then Andrew?

17 May, 2016

 

It's a long, long trek from his home to Devon, Dd!!!! (It wouldn't surprise me if he didn't go for a little day out, though, lol.)

18 May, 2016

 

DD - no, I didn't travel to Devon for it. They did offer to get some more and bring them up to me, but it would have been £9.99 each PLUS delivery. I will see if anyone else nearer has them for sale next year.

18 May, 2016

 

It's for sale at Burford Garden Centre (https://www.burford.co.uk/garden-and-outdoor/plants/cottage-garden/digitalis-purpurea-ice-queen/), and the very similar, but shorter Digitalis Silver Fox (https://www.burford.co.uk/garden-and-outdoor/plants/cottage-garden/digitalis-silver-fox/).
