Digitalis purpurea Camelot Lavender
Camelot Lavender Foxglove
Any digitalis can be breathtaking but 'Camelot Lavender' is part of a new generation of Digitalis that has so many garden advantages that it may make all other selections obsolete. The Camelot series features plants that display great uniformity in the garden with consistent, spectacular flowering in the first and second season in the garden, something that can be hit or miss in other selections. Deep green, heavily corrugated foliage emerges in the spring to form a basal mound from which a flower stalk rises starting in late May. Buds and open in June to reveal tubular, deep lavender individual flowers with speckled throats. What makes these flowers even more spectacular is that, unlike most other Digitalis, the flowers are held horizontal on the stalk making for spectacular viewing. You'll love the show as will the local hummingbirds and it is a perfect plant for livening up a partial shade garden with show stopping color through the end of July.
