Digitalis grandiflora 'Carillon'
This dwarf form of grandiflora is a lovely woodland plant; it is a true perennial unlike the more common Foxgloves. ‘Carillon’ is very floriferous, with flowers on one side of each stem. After flowering when basal foliage develops, cut to basal growth for smaller rebloom. Soft yellow flowers appear between June and August.
Most Digitalis species are biennial, meaning they live for two years. They are known for their tall spectacular racemes of showy flowers, resembling the cut finger of a glove (digitalis means “finger-like”). All are happiest in constant in constant moisture and partial shade. Note that Digitalis grandiflora is a true perennial.
