A rare first! ‘Candy Mountain’ is the first foxglove ever to have upward-facing flowers instead of the usual downward-facing ones. With this new angle, viewers can easily see the beautifully speckled throats of these rose pink blossoms. They are produced on very strong, strictly upright stems in early summer. This variety is a biennial.
Digitalis forms large rosettes of downy, green, oblong leaves from which numerous flower spikes emerge. It looks especially nice when planted along fences, at the wood’s edge, or in large containers.
