Plant Type: Perennials

Deep lavender purple flowers with heavily spotted maroon throats are produced all the way around the stems in early summer.  The basal foliage forms a compact clump and the plants are well-branched.  Digitalis forms large rosettes of downy, green, oblong leaves from which numerous flower spikes emerge.  It looks especially nice when planted along fences, at the wood's edge, or in large containers.
