Digitalis purpurea 'Excelsior Hybrids'
Digitalis 'Excelsior Hybrids' is a mix of pink, purple and white, bell-shaped flowers. The tubular flowers bloom in early summer and attract hummingbirds. The long-stemmed flowers of Foxglove 'Excelsior Hybrids' are good for cutting, but I prefer to keep them in the garden where they stand out like exclamation points, providing height and interest.
Also known as Digitalis purpurea 'Excelsior Mix'. It received the Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society.
