Ferruginea Foxglove

1

This perennial foxglove is quite unique and also known as rusty foxglove The very long spikes are covered with small bell-shaped blooms in a creamy yellow shade flecked with rusty brown. It blooms quite late, and the 4' plants provide a nice background to the perennial garden in late summer. Dries well.

    a perennial foxglove

    I love these - a reliable foxglove that blooms quite a bit later than the others. And they reseed like crazy.
