Plant Details

This very rare, absolutely magnificent new foxglove relative, only recently introduced from China, has glossy scalloped leaves and graceful upright flower stems, heavy with nodding, darker-throated, deep rose, bell-like flowers, resembling huge flared foxgloves. This incredible new perennial, which will even do well in shady gardens, is a very long-lasting, prolific bloomer, plants continuing to send up new spikes of these lovely bells for up to four months. 

Hardy to about -8 in well-drained soil.

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: 60cm

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.
