Plant Details

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

All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, 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.
