Rehmannia elata (Chinese foxglove)


Plant Information

Aspect: Full Shade
Aspect: Full Sun
Aspect: Light/Partial Shade
Soil Type: Most Types
Colour: Pink

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 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.
  • For a limited time we are offering free delivery for orders over £50.
If you have any questions about our plants, please feel free to contact us and we'll be happy to help.
