From the Caucasus comes this dainty foxglove bearing spires of bell shaped cream flowers in early summer. The medium height clumps of foliage consist of strap-like leaves which are covered in tiny hairs. Rare and beautiful, it grows best in semi shade and prefers a well-drained spot.
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
