Strawberry Foxglove
Strawberry Foxglove Digitalis mertonensis Also called Digitalis x fulva. Copper-tinged strawberry-rose 2½" pendulous bell-shaped flowers adorned with pink and white spotted throats form along stately spires above basal rosettes of deep green velvet foliage.

Flowers June through August. Good for cutting or the naturalized border. The hardiest foxglove for northern gardens. Considered perennial but is best treated as biennial. Spread out the seedlings as they appear and a glorious patch will result in a few years.

Plant 12–24" apart in moist slightly acid soil in full sun to part shade. Caution: all parts of the plant are poisonous; wash hands after handling. 2–4' tall. Z3. 3½" plug stock.

Additional Information

Herbaceous Perennial Plants

When you receive your order, open the bags and check the stock immediately. Roots and crowns should be firm and pliable, not soft or brittle. If they are slightly dry, add a little water or, if they are going to be potted up soon, wet the roots. Generally, a little surface mold is harmless and will not affect the plant’s future performance. If you cannot pot them up immediately, store them in a cool (35–40°) location for a short time.
Pot up the rootstock using well-drained potting mix in a deep 6" pot or a 1-gallon container. Avoid coiling the roots in under-sized containers.
Grow newly potted perennials for a few weeks in a protected location in indirect light at 50–60°. Wet and/or cold conditions for an extended period may cause rotting of the root crowns.
Transplant outside once they show some top growth and the danger of frost has passed.
