How to plant Foxglove seeds

Foxgloves are easy to grow, vertical accents for part sun, or dappled shade. Flowers attract hummingbirds galore with magnificent spires of tubular flowers. Bloom begins in late spring, or early summer. Once main flower spike is cut, side shoots develop and bloom until September.

POLKADOT HYBRID Foxglove Seeds Digitalis interspecific hybrids

Polkadot Hybrids is a true perennial foxglove series, long lived and super long flowering! Plants produce extra-large, richly-colored flowers evenly spaced and tightly packed on 3.5 ft. long stems. Flowers are subtlety speckled with white dots. Because flowers do not set seed, individual blooms can hold for many weeks, extending the season of flowers.

Polkadot Foxgloves begin blooming in spring, and continue to flower into the fall. In our mild Northern California climate, Polkadot Princess and Polkadot Pippa will even flower into November or December. The uniform, well-branched plants grow to 40 in. tall. Polkadot Hybrids foxgloves live for many years. Winter hardy to zone 4.
