The handsome deep green leaves are large, dense, and heavily textured. Foliage is evergreen, and will remain attractive all year. Compared to other foxgloves, Strawberry foxglove leaves are more sun tolerant, less susceptible to leaf spot and powdery mildew, more resistant to sucking and chewing pests, and by far hold more appeal.

Strawberry foxglove growth is compact, and never weedy. Uncommonly elegant, plants are particularly fine additions to the more tailored plantings, found near entryways or patios, where close up viewing is the norm. Your guests will praise your Strawberry foxgloves, even those previously immune to the charms of your garden.

To grow Strawberry foxglove to perfection, provide rich, moist soil and afternoon shade. Strawberry foxglove will accept more sun (even full sun in milder areas), and less water than most foxgloves, and can perform admirably under less than optimal conditions. Grow plants in groups of 3 or 5, to create highest visual impact.

Plants are winter hardy to zone 4. Strawberry foxglove grows beautifully with Red Hobbit columbine.
