Product Description

Foxglove ‘Alba’ 
Digitalis purpurea

An old fashioned, cottage garden favorite well-loved by pollinators. The long graceful stems of this towering variety are loaded with creamy buds that open to pure snow white. Unlike other foxgloves, this variety does not have any freckles in the inside of its bell-shaped blooms. Fantastic for wedding work and displaying en masse. 

*All parts of the plants are poisonous if ingested. Wear gloves when harvesting and use caution around children and pets.*

Details:
Plant type: biennial
Height: 48-72”
Site: part sun/shade
Days to maturity: 330-360 days

How to Grow:
Sow seeds from late spring to early summer and plant seedlings in the garden at least 6 weeks before your first autumn frost. Plants will winter over in the garden and bloom the following spring. 

Harvesting/Vase Life:
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, so  harvest early when just a few blossoms are open. Expect a vase life of 6-8 days if flower preservative is used.
