Foxglove Gloxiniiflora Blend HEIRLOOM Seeds

Digitalis purpurea

Item #1020

Biennial. Excellent as a cut flower, this very sturdy variety has flowers larger and wider than most Foxglove varieties. Considered a biennial (foliage first year, flowers second year), it acts as a perennial, reseeding itself, making it great for "naturalized” areas. Performs best in partial shade. Considered care free and easy to grow from seed. Deer Resistant.
Caution: All parts of this plant are poisonous.

When to sow outside: 1 to 2 weeks after average last frost up until 2 months before first fall frost.

When to start inside: 6 to 8 weeks before average last frost. (Generally started outside. The “early” advantage of starting biennials inside is lost since blooms won’t happen until the second season).

Special germination instructions: Requires light to germinate; press seed into soil surface — do not cover with soil; keep moist.
