Foxglove, 'Apricot Beauty'
(Digitalis purpurea) AKA “Suttons Apricot” and simply “Apricot’. We know how hard waiting can be. Accustomed to the instant gratification that assails us daily, waiting is an almost extinct leap of faith. Apricot Beauty is well worth the wait for a second-year bloomer. Worth the magnificent 4-5’ tall flower spikes that are a coral-apricot color at bud stage, opening into the softest of pinks with customary interior dark speckling. Each plant has at least 5 spikes so you will be richly rewarded for your efforts. You can also think of them as a Victory Garden for bees and other small insects! Your generosity is astounding. Blooms second year.
