Foxglove, Strawberry (Organic)
Digitalis x fulva. Perennial to zone 4.
Stunning pink-peach bell shaped blossoms form on 2-4′ tall spikes that bloom for weeks and make a great cut flower. Hummingbirds and pollinators love the flowers. Strawberry foxglove is not invasive like the wild types, but is the result of an interspecific cross made almost 200 years ago. Basal rosette of evergreen foliage stays attractive year-round. This short lived perennial is deer resistant and prefers part shade. Deadheading in mid-summer may lead to second round of flowering. Aka, Digitalis x mertonensis.
