Description

Dalmatian Purple foxglove (Digitalis purpurea 'Dalmatian Purple') has spikes of purple flowers with throats intensely spotted with maroon. This cultivar is unique in that it blooms the first year from seed (all other species and cultivars are biennials and will only bloom the second year), and that the flowers face all directions (typically the flowers all tend to one side of the stem).

Because of its tall, upright habit, Foxglove makes a great perennial border plant or a "thriller" in mixed containers.
