Foxglove is a classic perennial that is easy to identify thanks to its tall stems and evenly spaced bell-shaped flowers. The Digitalis purpurea Camelot Lavender has lavender blooms with speckled throats. Deep green foliage is the first part of this plant to appear in the spring, and the tall flower stalks shortly follow it. The flowers begin to bloom in June, and the flowers last until the end of July. This cultivar stands out because the flowers are very evenly spaced and held almost completely horizontally.
This plant is well-loved by hummingbirds and will look lovely when featured near a patio or window, and this location may also afford the opportunity to view the tiny birds feeding on the flowers. These tall, upright plants can reach 36 to 48 inches tall, so feature them near the back of a bed or along a border when they can be admired. The tall flower stalks also make beautiful cut flowers. This old-fashioned plant is a perennial in USDA growing zones 4 through 8.
Camelot Lavender Foxglove Care
The Camelot Lavender Foxglove will do best with partial shade, so 4 to 6 hours of sunlight is ideal. Support healthy growth by using rich, moist soil and water when the top inch of soil dries out. Rich soil is enough to support healthy growth, and fertilizing is not generally necessary. When planting, maintain rich soil by amending the ground with organic compost and top dress the soil each spring using organic compost.
Allow the plants to set seeds when the flowers die back to ensure you will have a new crop of Foxglove in the spring. All growth can be cut back in the fall after the plants have set seeds. Cover the plant with mulch to help insulate the root ball from chilly winter weather.
Camelot Lavender Foxglove Spacing
This particular Foxglove cultivar will reach 36 to 48 inches tall. The Camelot Lavender Foxglove spreads 18 to 24 inches. When planting, place the Camelot Lavender Foxglove 16 to 18 inches apart.
