The tiniest, and possibly most-attractive of all foxgloves. Very rarely offered by UK nurseries.

From Mallorca, Menorca, and Cabrera where it lives in rocky crags, often colonising the soil at the foot of mountain cliff faces. It is perfect for any rich, well drained soil in the rock garden, or as a front-of-border plant.

Perennial.

Does best in light shade in soil which doesn't get too dry.

Height:20-30cm

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): Mallorca Foxglove, Majorca Foxglove

Information

  • All our plants are hardy and perennial (come back year after year) unless otherwise specified in the description.
  • Every plant we sell is sold established in at least a 9cm pot, although many are in bigger pots. Unlike some nurseries, we do not sell plug plants because these require ongoing care when you receive them. Our plants can be planted in your garden as soon as you receive them, or they can be left in their pots for several weeks until you are ready to plant them.
  • As we grow everything ourselves and cannot just buy more stock when levels are low, there will be times when certain varieties are unavailable until the next batch has grown on.
  • We are not technically 'organic' but, as far as possible, we limit the use of pesticides and chemicals. We are fortunate enough to be situated in the countryside and we enjoy the environment and natural world that surrounds us, so we do what we reasonably can to protect it.
If you have any questions about our plants, please feel free to contact us and we'll be happy to help.
