Foxgloves & Hollyhocks

Foxgloves

Foxgloves (Digitalis) are native plants with tall spikes of flowers, usually in shades of pink, purple and white in early summer. The flowers are often speckled inside with a contrasting colour, and attract many butterflies and insects. They are perennial if the flower spikes are cut down before they seed, otherwise if left, they will seed freely, creating natural drifts of plants. They are ideal for dappled shade, and create a beautiful, natural feel in a garden.

Hollyhocks

Hollyhocks (Alcea rosea) are classic cottage garden plants. They produce spikes of large flowers, double or single depending on the variety, in a huge array of colours over the summer. They are ideal for growing against a wall, or to add height at the back of a border. Hollyhocks are usually grown as binnials, but self-seed freely .

We have a good range of perennials throughout early - mid summer, however if you are travelling to the nursery for a specific variety, please give us a call or email to check availability before you visit. We will be happy to help and advise.

 If ordering online, please note that there may be a wait of up to 10 days before we send your plants, as we might need to order them in from our growers. Occasionally a variety becomes unavailable, in which case we can usually offer a very similar substitute.
