In true obsessive style, why have one type of foxglove when you can have dozens.....and, heartened by a little success in the woods, this has been a digitalis year. Mostly, common old purpurea, but also D.lutea, grandiflora, parviflora, dubia, heywoodii and now, completely new to me, seeds arrived for the willow-leaved foxglove, aka Sunset foxglove, D.obscura. What a beauty (at least looking at interweb images).
Anyone familiar with this little Spanish foxglove? Sounds like it might be a winner for those of you who garden on well-drained, droughty soil....and it will grow in shade (dry) too.
Do tell me about your foxglove adventures as this little craving is showing no signs of abating just yet (and I have not even started on penstemons....although P.grandiflora arrived also today). I was meant to be cutting myself some slack on this seed-sowing lark......failing already.
