Description

Digitalis thapsi Fingerhut Foxglove has spikes of large, raspberry flowers from early to mid-summer. Its tall, wooly foliage gives it a soft and charming quality even when it's not in bloom. Digitalis thapsi can be cut back in July to encourage heavier blooming.

Digitalis thapsi is similar to Digitalis pupurea, though it is more compact. Digitalis thapsi is a true perennial whereas D. purpurea is biennial.

Digitalis thapsi Fingerhut Foxglove prefers full sun to part shade, and moist, well-draining soil. This plant is deer-resistant and a joy for hummingbirds and bumblebees, who find the flowers to be perfectly shaped for a meal.

Digitalis thapsi Fingerhut Foxglove would be an excellent addition to any cottage, woodland, or cut flower garden.

CAUTION: All parts of this plant are toxic & may be fatal if ingested.

We ship via UPS & USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
