Digitalis used to be called “Folks Glove,” because its flower resembled the finger of gloves worn by “good folk” or fairies, who, like the plant, dwell in deep hollows and woody dells. This poisonous herb grows easily in any fertile soil, seeds itself freely, and lends a naturalized look at the edge of woodlands, especially when combined with Aruncus, Actaea, or ferns.
Vigorous and upright, this biennial cultivar is named for the large, pendulous apricot blooms that crowd its imposing, straight stems. The medium green leathery leaves are slightly wooly, large at the base of the stalk and smaller as they ascend.
Coveted by bumblebees, hummingbirds and gardeners alike, ‘Sutton’s Apricot’ dresses the garden in pastels and a carefree style.
Size: 4' 0" high x 2' 0" wide.
