FOXGLOVE
Dalmatian Peach
Digitalis purpurea

Blooms the first year from seed.

A dreamy mix of peach and pale pink bells which sit closely together on one side of the stem.  Seeds are palleted for ease of handling.  Though technically a perennial it is best to treat this variety as a hardy annual as often winter survival is poor. Remove the first flower spike early to encourage more 'prince' flowers from the base.
