Digitalis purpurea ‘Apricot’


Digitalis purpurea ‘Apricot’

Large spires of the most exquisite soft shade of pinky apricot. A wonderful shape and colour which I find works well with all of its seasonal contemporaries including peonies, Daucus, iris, Sweet williams and Astrantia. Foxgloves are a favourite flower for both me and the bees.
