Loved by bees.

A 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.

Common name(s): Fox and cubs; Orange hawkweed

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.
