CHINESE FOXGLOVE SEEDS
Rehmannia elata 'Rufus'
Chinese foxglove is easy to grow in sun or shade. Large, bright, scarlet-rose, 3 inch tubular flowers with yellow red-dotted throats appear continuously from May to November.
When blooms are cut, they are handsome and long-lasting in the vase. Chinese foxglove flowers strong the first year, and can be grown as an annual everywhere. Often self-sows. Winter hardy to zone 7, or zone 6 with protection.
How to Plant Chinese Foxglove Seeds
Sow Chinese Foxglove seed in cell packs or flats, press into soil and barely cover. Kept at 60-65°F., germination is in 15-30 days. Transplant into the garden 12-18 inches apart after all danger of frost. See Starting Seeds for more information.
