The Camelot series foxglove (Digitalis) is seed-propagated and includes four colors – Camelot Cream, Camelot White, Camelot Rose and Camelot Lavender.
This is the best foxglove for Louisiana so far, and it is notable for its large spikes of outward-facing, bell-shaped flowers. It is best planted in September through November or in February through early March.
An early fall planting will bloom in fall and continue through spring. A late-winter planting will bloom in spring. First bloom will last four to six weeks, with secondary bloom lasting another month. Flowering will last through mid-May.
Rain and wind can cause stems to fall over on 30- to 36-inch-tall plants. Plants perform well in sun, partial sun and partially shaded locations.
