Foxy Foxglove

This unique annual foxglove was an All America Selection in 1967. Flower stalks are 36 to 38 inches tall in white, cream, yellow, violet, and various shades of red with contrasting spots. Will bloom in the same year it's sown. Plants set out in May will flower from August till frost -- long after the perennial foxgloves have faded -- so they can work well interplanted with early blooming annuals that die back (like schizanthus or poppies)
