Digitalis Snow Thimble

Digitalis Snow Thimble
Biennial
Height: 3"
Light:Full Sun-Partial Shade
Flowering Time: Early Summer
Zone: 3

Large, pure snow-white, 2-3'' pendulous bell-shaped flowers on stems to 40'' tall. Exciting new introduction. This is a new and unique selection of Foxglove, bearing tall spikes of pure white bell-shaped flowers with no spotting on the inside. Plants form low rosettes of coarse, hairy leaves in the first year, bursting into flower the second spring, then setting seed and usually dying. These perform best in a rich, moist soil. Allow plants to form seed in the second year and they will often self-sow to produce future generations. New seedlings that appear can be easily moved in their first season, while still small. Plants may need to be staked. CAUTION: Toxic if eaten.
