Called 'Fox and cubs' because of the appearance of the open flowers (the fox) alongside the flower buds (the cubs). Lovely, deep-orange flowers held in clusters on tall slender stems that emerge from low rosettes of hairy foliage from June to September.
Loved by bees.
An absolutely wonderful, vigorous plant, which needs plenty of space.
Native to Central and Southern Europe, where in some areas it is protected. Naturalised in many areas of Britain.
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.
