Foxglove Obscura Sunset
Foxglove ‘Obscura Sunset'
Thin, sturdy dark chocolate-colored stems are covered in rusty red bells with glowing orange-copper throats. Knee high plants are on the shorter side, but what they lack in stature they make up for in their versatile coloring. This variety is perfect for flower arranging and is extremely long-lasting.
*All parts of the plants are poisonous if ingested. Wear gloves when harvesting and use caution around children and pets. *
Plant type: biennial
Site: part sun/shade

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.
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.
