Foxglove Camelot Lavender, Digitalis purpurea 'Camelot Lavender', is a new Hybrid Foxglove with large, pendulous, lavender flowers with dark-burgundy speckles. Unlike other Foxglove, the 'Camelot' series forms flowers all the way around the sturdy flowers stalks, instead of just on one side!
These uniform plants create high quality flower spikes in a rich carousel of color as the speckled, jewel-like blooms open all around the stout stems, giving more impact than ever before! Ideal for shady beds and borders
Digitalis should be planted in full sun but will tolerate morning shade. It blooms early to mid summer. Being a major attraction to bees, butterflies and birds, it is a must in any garden. In most climates, partial shade is best, though it will grow in full sun in northern regions. Plus, it is resistant to both deer and rabbits.
Try planting it in woodland gardens, as a border plant or for cut-flowers. Remember to leave some dead flower stalks to self-sow for future flowers. (All parts of Digitalis are poisonous if ingested and can be invasive).
