Description Fine Print
 
Digitalis x mertonensis is a cross between D. grandiflora and D. purpurea which produce larger flowers than its parents on plants that are perennial lasting much longer than the common foxglove. Flowers are borne on terminal racemes atop 3-4 foot tall spires. Flowers are bell-shaped in a rosy-pink shade with darker speckled throats. Blooms all summer long. Foliage is very attractive even when not in bloom. Cut flowering spike to the base when finished flowering to encourage new growth. Leave new growth to over-winter. Perfect at the back of a mixed border. Attracts bees and hummingbirds. Deer resistant.
