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.
