This very rare, absolutely magnificent new foxglove relative, only recently introduced from China, has glossy scalloped leaves and graceful upright flower stems, heavy with nodding, darker-throated, deep rose, bell-like flowers, resembling huge flared foxgloves. This incredible new perennial, which will even do well in shady gardens, is a very long-lasting, prolific bloomer, plants continuing to send up new spikes of these lovely bells for up to four months. It is hardy down to minus eight centigrade in a well-drained position, or may be even better admired in a large pot. Few seeds collected.
For best results, sow seeds onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20 degrees C. Although they can be sown at any time, these seeds may sometimes wait for spring before emerging, but spring sowing will obviously give them a full season of growth. Plant out finally in a well-drained sheltered position.
