This woodland biennial reliably produces beautiful upright spikes of bell-shape flowers in shades of purple, pink, and white. Note: While most common foxgloves are biennial, they often self seed and appear each year in the garden. Name: Digitalis varieties Growing conditions: Partial sun and moist, well-drained soil Height: 2-6 feet tall, depending on variety Zones: 3-8, depending on variety
Most foxglove blossoms point down but this one points UP so the beautiful blooms that start peachy and end up dark pink very showy. Foxglove (Digitalis hybrida Candy Mountain) Perennial, Tall 3-4' (Plant 1-2' apart) Bloom Time: Early Summer to Late Summer Sun-Shade: Mostly Sunny to Mostly Shady Zones: 4-9 I started these from seed and I risked planting them (with trepidation) in an area with shade most of the day but hot afternoon sun. They thrived and all of them grew to AT LEAST 4 feet!
