Foxglove Camelot Cream
Foxglove 'Camelot Cream'
This old fashioned bloomer pumps out masses of towering stems with creamy, freckled blooms for a solid two months from late spring to early summer. While most foxgloves are biennials, this new hybrid flowers the first year from an early sowing of seed and will also produce the second year if left in place.
*All parts of the plants are poisonous if ingested. Wear gloves when harvesting and use caution around children and pets.*
Plant type: annual/biennial
Site: part sun/shade
Days to maturity: 130-145 days
Plant spacing: 12”
Pinch: not necessary
Approx seeds per packet: 25
How to Grow:
Start seed indoors in trays 10-12 weeks before last frost; transplant out after all danger of frost has passed. Seed is slow to start; bottom watering is recommended until plants emerge.
The trick to getting the longest vase life from foxglove is to cut it before the bees find it. When the blooms are pollinated, they drop from the stems; harvest early when just a few blossoms are open. Expect a vase life of 6-8 days if flower preservative is used.
