SPANISH PEAKS® foxglove

Digitalis thapsi

Spanish Peaks Foxglove, Digitalis thapsi
Raspberry rose-colored flowers in early summer are carried over a trim mat of furry leaves. This cousin to the familiar foxglove is perennial, and virtually unknown in cultivation. From Spain. Perennial. Xeriscape.

Tips from the pros: Thrives in a variety of sites and soils, especially dry shade. Cut plants back in July to encourage prolonged bloom. Best combined with a late summer bloomer that will carry on the show when Spanish Peaks is wrapping it up.
