Digitalis mertonensis ''Summer King'' - Strawberry Foxglove
Another glorious biennial foxglove that forms a mound of glossy dark green foliage in its first season, followed by stout, strong stems of large strawberry-red campanula-like flowers in its second season. As with the apricot foxglove, cutting back the flowers stems immediately after flowering will encourage more in the same season. It then becomes a short-lived perennial and I've had them flowering in my garden for around three more years. Just wonderful! Full sun (as long as it doesn't dry out in Summer), partial or full shade. 80cm x 45cm approximately.
