New in the Nursery: Goldcrest Foxglove
A mid-summer favorite in the terrain garden, Digitalis 'Goldcrest,' or Goldcrest Foxglove, is formed from a stalk of dark green leaves and tubular blossoms of apricot and gold, dappled with maroon. Native to the UK, these architectural perennials should be planted in full sun, but are amenable to morning shade. Easy to maintain, foxgloves thrive in moist, well-drained soil and can grow up to two feet fall. Plant along a fence or in large containers and these sherbet-hued blooms will remain garden show-stoppers until early fall. Although foxgloves are repellent to rabbits and deer, you may spot a few extra hummingbirds in the garden-- they are partial to foxglove nectar.
