Digitalis purpurea 'Excelsior Hybrids' is a mixture of pink, purple and white, bell-shaped flowers. The tubular flowers bloom in early summer, attracting hummingbirds. The long-stemmed flowers of Foxglove 'Excelsior' are good for cutting, but I prefer to keep them in the garden where they stand out like exclamation points, providing height and interest.
