Description


Digitalis purpurea Alba is dramatic, architectural and long flowering. Digitalis are one of the most distinctive and instantly recognisable garden plants and make a statement all summer. Clear white blooms are held high on strong, upright stems above semi-evergreen foliage all summer and into the autumn. The nectar-rich blooms are much loved by bees and butterflies, Digitalis are happy growing in borders and containers. Commonly known as Foxgloves, legend tells naughty fairies put the blooms from a Digitalis over the fox's paws to help him keep silent while he was hunting. If you look inside the blooms you can even see the tiny marks left by the fairies' footprints. In the eighteenth century, it was discovered that Digitalis acts upon the heard, and a medication for cardiac complaints called Digoxin was then made from extracts. Being a woodland plant, Digitalis purpurea Alba prefers to be grown in moist, well-drained soil in sun or part shade. Growing to an approximate height of 1.2m and spread of 30cm, Digitalis are short lived hardy perennial plants, seed can be collected and sown in subsequent years.
