Digiplexis

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 with the rather tender Canary Island Isoplexis canariensis resulted in these incredibly long flowering, easily grown border plants.

This breakthrough hybrid carries tall stems of large, densely packed flowers in rich and unique colours. They will flower longer than each of their parents and are happy in any sunny or lightly shaded spot which doesn’t parch during summer.

Digiplexis 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 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. Read more about Digiplexis
