AMBER TOWERS PERENNIAL FOXGLOVE

This impressive foxglove is amongst the tallest we have ever seen to heights of 1.8m and even above. Several long thin spires arise, clad along most of their length with large-lipped, dark-veined amber flowers. The foliage rosette is leathery and evergreen. In areas with cool Summers, it prefers full sun, in hotter areas it may need part shade. A beautiful perennial statement that’s bone hardy, this plant will perform trouble-free for many years.
