Digitalis ferruginea 'Gelber Herold' (Rusty Foxglove)
150 seeds $3.50
I'm just crazy about digitalis species. This rare foxglove is one of my favorites. Digitalis 'Gelber Herold' blooms in midsummer 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 Digitalis ferruginea 'Gigantea Yellow Herald' and 'Krk Island'. Deer resistant. Hardy in zones 4-9. Also see Digitalis ferruginea 'Gigantea'.
