(Digitalis ferruginea) This lovely perennial foxglove, native to the Balkans has long found a cherished home in classic British Cottage gardens and for good reason. There is an understated and regal elegance to their stately spires of blooms. 5-6’ spikes emerge from a lily-like whorl of smooth lanceolate leaves (quite different than the native PNW foxgloves) and open to soft golden blooms with finely detailed burgundy veining. Very much admired by the bees as well, this is among the loveliest flower to grace our home garden. Pure grace.
Biennial, blooms the second year in full sun, sometimes third in less optimal conditions. UO
