Digitalis purpurea ‘Camelot Lavender’

This is a unique selection of Foxglove, bearing tall spikes of soft lavender-mauve bells, each spotted inside with maroon purple. Buds begin a creamy-yellow color. Unlike other types, ‘Camelot’ Foxgloves flower in both the first and second year before eventually setting seed and dying. Deadhead first-year blooms to encourage overwintering. These perform best in a rich, moist soil. Allow plants to form seed in the second year and they may self-sow to produce future generations. New seedlings that appear can be easily moved in their first season, while still small. Plants may need to be staked.

Feed: Fertilization is not generally required for good plant output. Miracle-Gro® Water Soluble All Purpose Plant Food and required.

Prune: Hard prune your foxglove foliage back in the late fall or early winter after the first hard frost when the seeds have been released to the soil. Shear off the dying or dead foliage down to the soil surface and compost them.

Notes: CAUTION: Toxic if eaten.
