Digitalis used to be called “Finger-flowers,” because its blossoms resemble the fingers of a glove with the ends cut off. Dwelling in deep hollows and woody dells, this poisonous herb grows easily in any fertile soil, seeds itself freely, and lends a naturalized look at the edge of the woodlands, especially when combined with Aruncus, Actaea or ferns.
'Silver Fox' flounces such a winning combination of soothing pastel colors, it’s hard to decide what is more lovely: the large white bells laced with pink on the outside and speckled with dark pink on the inside, or the lanceolate woolly silver foliage. Luring butterflies, gardeners and florists, the bounty of blooms crest multiple stems above an undemanding biennial habit that easily reseeds, fends off deer as well as bunnies and enjoys lime-free well-drained sites.
Size: 2-1/2' high x 12" wide.
