Product Description

Digitalis grandiflora

 

100 Seeds|

 

This is a compact selection of a truly perennial Foxglove species. Plants form a low rosette of dark green leaves, bearing upright stalks of beautiful creamy-yellow bells through the summer. Each flower is intricately marked with brown on the inside. The lovely soft shade allows this plant to blend with nearly anything. Excellent for cutting. Remove faded flowers to encourage more buds to form. Any seedlings that appear may be easily moved in early spring. Does not need staking. A good choice for the border or woodland garden.  Winter Hardy to zone 4.  Height 12-16 inches tall at maturity with a 12-18 spread.CAUTION: Toxic if eaten.

Tips on How to Grow Foxglove (Digitalis)

Plug Culture

 

 

  • Germination – Optimum conditions for seedling development that begins the day the crop is sown until cotyledon expansion.

  • Expect radicle emergence in 3 – 4 days.

  • Cover: Do not cover seed. Needs Light to Germinate

  • Media: pH: 5.8 – 6.2

  • Keep seed in constant moisture (not wet) they will usually germinate in 2 to 4 weeks at around 20°C (68°F).

  • Light: Light is necessary for germination. If utilizing a chamber, providing a light source of 10 – 100 foot candles will improve germination and reduce stretch.

 

Temperature:

 

 

65° – 70°F (18° – 21°C) until cotyledon expansion.

  • Moisture: Medium (2) until radicle emergence. Then begin alternating between moisture levels moist (3) and medium (2). Allow media to approach level (2) before re-saturating to level (3).

  • NOTE: Saturated media will discourage the roots from penetrating into the media.

  • Humidity: Days 1 – 6 maintain 90 – 95% or until radicle emergence and initial roots penetrate the media. On day 7, reduce to 40 – 70%.

  • Dehumidify: Provide horizontal airflow to aid in drying down the media through evapotranspiration, allowing better penetration of oxygen to the roots.

  • Finish Bulking/Flower Initiation – Optimum conditions during the vegetative period, beginning at transplant, needed for the root to reach the edge of the container, AND to make the plant receptive to flower initiation.

  • Media: • pH: 5.8 – 6.2

  • EC: 0.75 – 1.5

  • Light: Time to flower and the number of flowers produced increase proportionally with light levels. Though classified as a shade plant, Digitalis can handle high light conditions with adequate moisture and cool temperatures.

 

GARDEN SPECIFICATIONS

 

Light: Partial shade to full sun

USDA Hardiness Zone: 5

Garden Height: 3.5 – 4 feet (1 – 1.5 m)

Garden Width: 24 – 30 inches (60 – 75 cm)

In trials, plants grown in greenhouses with additional lights exhibited stretched habits and loose flower spikes. Crops grown cool in protected cold frames will produce compact plants with good lateral development of secondary spikes.
