Plant Details

A lovely foxglove-like plant with prolific flowers which are long lasting. Additionally it will repeat flower, so you will have blooms over 4-5 months.

A rosette of broad, soft-haired leaves give rise to a very handsome spike of rich pink gloxinia-like trumpet shaped flowers of 2 foot stems. The flowers have yellow spotted throats giving a very tropical effect.

Fully hardy, but don't allow plants to sit in water in the winter or the leaves may succumb to moulds.

The common name of perennial flower Rehmannia is Chinese Foxgloves because the tubular flowers bear a resemblance to our native foxglove, but unlike traditional foxgloves, Chinese foxglove petals of the bell lip flare open and outward.

Common name(s): Chinese Foxglove

Height: 60 - 90cm

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.
