'Candy Mountain' Foxglove makes a showy display with rose-pink flowers on strong, four foot stalks that emerge from a large rosette of soft foliage. The upward facing blooms reveal pale pink throats with burgundy spots. 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)

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.

    Comments about American Meadows Candy Mountain Foxglove:

    I'm still hoping the plant will bloom. It is its first year and is quite healthy looking and sturdy. My other older foxgloves are all doing well and I believe this one will, too, as soon as it gets its flowering in motion. : )

              The plants arrived in good shape. American Meadows always packages things very well, I find. I plant them the same day. I bought these to add some height to the back of the garden since the description said they will flower this year.

              Not only did the plant not flower, it actually died after just a month in the ground.Very disappointing.

                Comments about American Meadows Candy Mountain Foxglove:

                I have gotten so many compliments on this plant! It definitaly stands apart from the usual garden staples and is striking. The height and color really have a great impact on my property other than visually - my house is in the woods and I have many 'visitors.' This is one plant that I can plant outside of my fenced-in yard & gardens that the deer will not touch. I'm buying more to plant in strategic places - for height and color - and to act as an unappetizing flag to help keep the deer from grazing at other things on my property! I really hope the ones I have reseed successfully on their own. I just wish they weren't biennial.

                    This took all Summer to finally flower, but we had so much rain that it didn't do well. I was hoping to get it to cross with our wild ones and get a hardy, beautiful color, but maybe in a better Summer it would work.

                    Q & A

                    Plant With These:

                    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).
