Description

24-36" tall x 10-12" wide. Dalmatian Peach Foxglove (Digitalis) is fast-growing, robust and accents the garden with pillars of color from early to mid-summer. Deep green basal foliage forms a low mound, sending up sturdy flower spikes in the first year. Unlike many Foxgloves, ‘Dalmatian Peach’ readily produces two years of blooms. In the first season, remove spent blooms by cutting back to the plant base. Deadheading conserves plant resources and promotes overwintering. Allow plants to produce seed in the second year to encourage self-sowing and a future generation of Foxglove. Plants perform best on moist, rich soils. Do not allow soils to dry out. Plant Dalmatian Peach Foxglove in masses in the cottage garden or naturalize in woodland settings. Plants are deer and rabbit resistant. Leaves and seeds of Foxglove (Digitalis) produce a powerful chemical used as a heart medicine, but are toxic if ingested.
