Digitalis purpurea ''Alba'' - White Foxglove
This is another one of the most beautiful foxgloves and a must have. It is a biennial (flowering in its second season) and in its first season it forms a glorious strong mound of stunning large foliage that is a statement in itself. This is followed by a tall strong stem of large pure white in its second season. If the flower stem is cut back immediately after flowering it will send up more multiple flower spikes in that same season. It will remain as a short-lived perennial, flowering for approximately two more years. Full sun (as long as soil doesn't dry out in summer) or partial to full shade. 1.2m x 60cm approximately.
