Digitalis

Foxglove

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.

Vigorous and upright, this biennial cultivar is named for the large, pendulous apricot blooms that crowd its imposing, straight stems. The medium green leathery leaves are slightly wooly, large at the base of the stalk and smaller as they ascend.

Coveted by bumblebees, hummingbirds and gardeners alike, ‘Sutton’s Apricot’ dresses the garden in pastels and a carefree style.

Blooms April–June.

Size: 4' 0" high x 2' 0" wide.

Zone 5/6.

It's a compelling collection of essays from international garden designers. Digging Dog Nursery co-owner Deborah Whigham is honored to have her article on the Autumnal Garden included.
