This is the rarest, and the finest and most impressive of all of the Canary Island shrubby foxgloves. In the wild in Tenerife it makes fabulous stands of tall stems clad with shiny, dark green, serrated leaves and topped with dense, congested spires of large, brownish-orange, trumpet-like flowers in tall and dense racemes.
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.
