Here come my foxgloves.

This one is called Digitalis purpurea 'Pam's Split'.

I heard about it on last year's Chelsea so had to buy the seed, as you do.

Fab Rachel, the foxgloves you gave me last year will be flowering, I think you said they were white?

never even seen one like this, very unusual, how could you not like it.

I bought the foxglove seeds from Thomson and Morgan on line.I buy 99.9% of my seeds on line. It's the only place you get that range of choice.

Linda, if I gave you a foxglove, it is the same batch - 'Pam's Split'.

Lets see how they look opened up.

Hi Rachel, one little flower is opening up and yes it looks like your Pam's Split, can't wait to see them all out, just wish the wind would ease up though!

Very nice wonder will it grow true from saved or self seeded love the way foxgloves pop up around the flower beds.
