Digitalis lanata ex. cream form
These have been grown from seed I collected off a particularly lovely form with paler flowers than the usual type. A hardy perennial forming clumps of quite narrow green leaves, each developing hairs as they age. In late spring/summer multiple spikes of flowers appear. The flowers are unusual in that they are almost round in shape, a lovely soft cream colour with a hint of coffee, honeycomb-like netting inside, and a protruding white lip. Prefers a spot with good drainage in light shade. 60cm H x 30cm W. 9cm pot.
