Growing Calendar for Digitalis (Foxglove) Dalmatian White - Plants
Delivery: Late April to Late May
Dalmatian White foxgloves are a great addition to the back and in the centre of beds in the garden or the allotment. Every summer tall stems of white flower emerge, offering colour and height and these foxgloves do well even in heavy shade. Happy growing in full sun too, just keep the soil moist so your Dalmatian White foxgloves flower at their best.
Foxglove Dalmatian White looks handsome in containers if you want a wildlife garden but have a concreted back yard only. This foxglove variety looks lovely planted in the middle of a container as a centrepiece too with a border of shorter bedding like white lobelia, white petunias or even purple petunias to match the purple freckly centres of the proud trumpet flowers of the Damatian White flowers.
As your foxglove plants bloom enjoy the attention they bring from our much-loved British insects like bumblebees and lacewings, sticking around to pollinate flowers of strawberries, peas and beans and tree blossom.
If you love your foxgloves tap the stems in late summer to disperse seeds from the seed heads. Seedlings will pop up near to the mother plant for the next generation of flowers. Perfect.
Perennial plants are the mainstay of the flower garden; many will flower all summer, becoming dormant in autumn to reappear in spring. Perennials tend to be non-fussy plants and are easy to look after - they just need the old stems cutting back in late autumn, which helps to promote new stems and vigorous growth the following spring, getting bigger and better every year!
