DIGITALIS PURPUREA ALBA
An unusual tight-spiked, white form of the purple foxglove carrying pale purple freckles within the throat. Impressive drifts can be easily established in the garden. The odd purple plant may occasionally pop up, but can be easily removed as soon as the coloured buds appear.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
