Fleuroselect Gold Medal Winner, Dalmation Purple Foxglove, Digitalis Purpurea 'Dalmatian Purple’, is an early-blooming wonder that starts with a rosette of thick, downy green foliage. In late May, tall, elegant spires measuring from 16 to 20 inches in height erupt from the mound. Other varieties of Foxglove bloom in mid to late summer, but the Dalmatian Purple Foxglove forms full, balloon-like buds that burst into vibrant, outward-facing, violet flowers by mid-June. These mystical flowers have deep-purple, fluted blooms with burgundy spotted throats and delicate lavender-ruffled edges. 

Dalmatian Purple Foxglove is an eclectic, colorful plant that attracts both hummingbirds and butterflies. It’s friendly to pollinators and provides early nectar. It is also critter resistant and can be grown in a variety of spaces. This variety of foxglove has a light, sweet fragrance and will be the focal point of any early summer garden. Foxglove is vulnerable to pests like aphids, thrips, mealybugs, whiteflies, and nematodes. Watch your foxglove for signs of distress brought on by garden pests.

Dalmatian Purple Foxglove Care

Your Dalmation Purple Foxglove should be planted in late winter or early spring. It will require regular watering, and should be kept moist but not saturated. Foxgloves are moderate feeders that perform their best when given consistent liquid fertilization. They need balanced, slightly acidic soil with good-drainage to thrive. An ideal pH for your foxglove is 7.0. This variety needs full sun in cooler climates, but can tolerate partial shade in the hottest regions.

Be sure to support your Dalmation Purple Foxglove and prevent their heavy heads from drooping with stakes or other support. To propagate your foxglove, it is best to let the flowers go to seed, then thin plants as they sprout the following spring. You can use pruning shears to cut back your foxglove when it has finished flowering. You should cut just above the leaves to stimulate fresh growth. 

Dalmatian Purple Foxglove Spacing

Foxglove looks especially striking when planted along fences, at the edges of woodland gardens, or in large containers. It pairs well with perennial shrubs like Heuchera or Gypsophila. It can be planted in a variety of containers and pots, but a gallon container is ideal. If you grow your foxglove in a container, make sure to provide adequate spacing between plants. At least 2 feet, center to center.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
