None of my white/cream excelsior mix self-seeded last year much to my disappointment and I’d spotted these Foxglove growing nicely and was grateful that I wouldn’t be without my ‘white’ Foxgloves… Oh well, they aren’t exactly white, nor are they as impressive but they are still lovely in their own right.
I’ve done a little research and believe I have Digitalis lutea or very, very maybe Digitalis Viridiflora (but I don’t think they’re brown enough!), I will have to move my plants as they are much smaller than I expected them to be and they’re being drowned by other plants; I think I’ll move them under the Cherry or to the upper tier where I dream of a nice woodland border with lots of Foxgloves.
I’ll be saving seeds of these unusual and unique little beauties and hope to get many more in the coming years.
The blooms are tiny – I don’t think the Bees will be climbing up inside these!
So, what say you my lovelies? Lutea or Viridiflora?
