Digitalis ferruginea 'Gelber Herold'

I'm just crazy about digitalis species. This rare foxglove is one of my favorites. Digitalis 'Gelber Herold' blooms in mid summer with towering spikes of soft, tan-yellow flowers with rusty veining. The flowers are larger than the species.

Digitalis ferruginea 'Gelber Herold' self sows freely in my zone 5 garden. It's a biennial or short-lived perennial.

Also known as Rusty Foxglove and Digitalis ferruginea 'Yellow Herald'. Deer resistant. Hardy in zones 4-9. Also see Digitalis ferruginea 'Gigantea'.
