Strawberry Mertonensis Digitalis Plants are a rare beauty and considered to be one of the longest living Foxgloves to date. Producing stately stalks of bell-like flowers atop fuzzy foliage, the crushed strawberry-pink blossoms sport white spotted and deeply red mottled throats. Simply stunning! Foxgloves grow best in moist, well-drained soils. They can be grown in full sun in the north but prefer afternoon shade in southern gardens. Digitalis plants are attractive to hummingbirds and bumblebees and make striking cut flowers! Deer and rabbits tend to avoid them. Plants are not pet friendly.
Digitalis Companion Plants: Astilbe, Aquilegia, Dicentra, Ferns, Hosta, Iris
Strawberry Digitalis Plant Care Instructions: Plants perform best when kept well-watered. Spent flowers should not removed as this plant will be short lived if not allowed to self-seed. Plants can be hard pruned in the late fall or early winter after the first hard frost.
