Product Description

Foxglove ‘Cafe Cream' 
Digitalis lanata

This pollinator-friendly plant is smothered in creamy, hoodlike blooms brushed with golden mustard yellow and intricately detailed with chocolate veining. Dark upright stems look as if they are covered in miniature lady slipper orchids - the effect is absolutely mesmerizing. A long-lasting cut that’s perfect for bouquets. Flowers later than most purpurea varieties. 

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

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.
