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.
This remarkable long-blooming F1 hybrid delivers oodles of floral pomp. Laden with crimson-speckled cream-hued blooms, the reliable, well-endowed towering spires develop in the first year and yield a grander repeat performance the second. Large, nectar-rich pendulous bells densely stud 4 ft. tall, steadfast stalks above hearty dark green leaves. A choice contender for cottage gardens or bouquets, ‘Camelot Cream’ relishes prudent dead-heading and moist rich soil.
Size: 3' 0" – 4' 0" high x 18" – 2' 0" wide.
