Plant Details

A beautiful rare foxglove from Turkey. Strong stems of creamy white flowers delicately veined. Coffee coloured streaks within and a large white lip. The blooms last for weeks.

Digitalis:

Bee Catchers, Dead Men's Thimbles, Fairy Bells, Fairy Fingers or, the most common name, Foxgloves. Traditionally associated with magic, fox gloves were supposedly given to the fox by fairies so he could creep silently into the chicken run. The leaves of the Digitalis family are poisonus, since they contain digitalin, a potent drug which slows the heartbeat and is still used medicinally. 

 

Common name(s): Helen of Troy Foxglove

All our plants are supplied established in pots. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
