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.
Granted an AGM for its statuesque presence and dependable nectar-rich flower power, this Camelot Series member was introduced in 2003. Numerous lusty stems shoulder an extraordinary profusion of densely-set creamy-yellow buds that reveal funnel-shaped white blossoms with burgundy-speckled pale lavender interiors. Delivering a first-year bloom, followed by an even more floriferous performance the next year, ‘Camelot Lavender’s ample, somewhat fuzzy basal mound of oblong, big-leafed greenery can be positioned in containers or massed along a woodland’s periphery, where it grows as a biennial or short-lived perennial but does reseed.
