This selection is described as a “bright pink version of ‘Pam’s Choice’”. Tall spires of pink flowers with heavily speckled, dark purple throats are produced in early summer. The flowers are closely spaced on the stems, resulting in strong color impact in the garden.
‘Sugar Plum’ forms large rosettes of downy green leaves. It is a biennial, meaning it lives for two years (only foliage the first year, blooming in its second year).
Digitalis looks especially nice when planted along fences, at the wood’s edge, or in large containers.
