description for "Foxgloves: Digitalis x mertonensis"

Foxglove is an old favorite. They are stately plants, adding a strong vertical effect to the lightly shaded garden in early summer. The flowers cut well. The plants like an evenly moist, well drained soil. Many species are biennial, but some are reliably perennial. Scatter seed of all varieties to ensure future plants. All will flower the second year. A hybrid from 1925. Foliage is greyish and lightly felted.
