Digitalis purpurea ‘Sutton’s Apricot’
Foxgloves lighten up even the darkest corner of your garden and Digitalis purpurea ‘Sutton’s Apricot’ is my favourite one of all!
Tried and tested by us, easy to grow and loved by Bee’s. Foxgloves thrive in full sun or part shade.
Digitalis purpurea ‘Sutton’s Apricot’ flowers from early summer, soft pink spires compliment arrangements and look great with Peonies and Roses.

Cutting /Vase Life:
For the longest vase life cut just as the blooms are beginning to open, before the Bee’s pollinate all the flowers. As each bloom is pollinated they will drop from the stem.
Once you pick the main flowering spire, leave the plant in place for a re shooting of lots more delicate bouquet worthy stems.
