Digitalis x mertonensis (Strawberry Foxglove)
Digitalis x mertonensis (Strawberry Foxglove) is quite showy: clump forming, deep green, fuzzy leaves and large, showy strawberry-pink tubular flowers. Strawberry Foxglove is considered a biennial, but like other biennial foxgloves, it deserves a place in the garden. Often, if the flowering stem is cut back after blooming, another plant will develop from the side, giving another plant and another year of blooms. Also, after blooming, the clumps can often be divided and replanted. Strawberry Foxglove grows in sun with some much appreciated shade, to about three feet in moist, well-drained soil. Zones 4-8. Quarts.
