A couple of years ago the gardening world in the UK, Europe and America was bewitched by these new plants, the result of some brilliant hybridising by the venerable old English company Thompson and Morgan.
Cross pollinating frost hardy Foxgloves (Digitalis) with the rather tender Canary Island Isoplexis canariensis resulted in these incredibly long flowering, easily grown border plants. They have done very well here at Lambley in a north facing border although they would be just as happy in a little light shade.
Whilst not drought tolerant needing regular summer watering they are tough and in our experience problem free. They are frost hardy in most if not all Australian gardens. Last year in our own garden they were in flower from late spring until mid-autumn This year we are offering three varieties.
