This foxglove is a biennial and will bloom the first year, but let seeds fall to produce more amazing flowers in seasons to come! (Digitalis purpurea)

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information

'Candy Mountain' ushers in a whole new color for foxgloves, with plants that grow to a maximum of 4 ft. Our potted 'Candy Mountain' Foxglove plants will bloom for you in their first season; their seeds, however, produce true biennials that only bring blooms in the second season of growth. As a Digitalis purpurea, 'Candy Mountain' is a descendent of Wild Foxglove.

The Foxglove Story The very important Wild Foxglove, Digitalis purpurea is a native of the UK, naturalized in the US, and famous for being used for Digitalis, the life-saving heart medicine. However, Wild Foxglove is a biennial which often makes it undependable in perennial plantings. But since the twenties, there have been beautiful perennial foxgloves too, a little shorter, but just as beautiful as the towering purpureas.

The great breakthrough came when a cross was accomplished in Merton, England in 1928 between the famous biennial wildflower and the perennial species, Digitalis grandiflora. The perennial foxglove has ever since been called Digitalis mertonensis, named after the town. However, Mertonensis gives us only one color and blooms every year. The Foxy Hybrids take their places in the foxglove line-up, bringing all the colors back with the biennial issue solved.
