  • Rate of growth: fast growing
  • Flowering period: June and July

    Glorious peach-coloured trumpets appear on the stout, branching stems from midsummer, creating structural interest in the border and attracting beneficial insects to the garden. Recently introduced, the foxgloves in the 'Dalmation Series' will usually flower in their first year.

  • Garden care: Ensure that the soil is kept moist in summer. After flowering cut back the flowered spikes to encourage more sideshoots. Cut down to the ground after flowering. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-ro tted organic matter around the plant in early spring.

    These plants are mainly short-lived perennials, although if happy they will produce plenty of new sideshoots and self-seed freely.
