Digitalis parviflora 'Milk chocolate'

Small flowered foxglove

This unusually coloured foxglove makes a striking addition to the garden. The thin spikes are densely crowded with small bronze-red flowers from July to September. 

It will grow in almost any soil or situation except very wet or very dry. The ideal site is humus-rich soil in partial shade but foxgloves are quite adaptable. 

A perennial but often treated as a biennial - collect the abundant seed when the seed pods have dried and scatter where you want some more to grow.
