Digitalis Walberton's Goldcrest is a foxglove hybrid of Digitalis obscura and Digitalis grandiflora. Being sterile, it blooms for longer and won’t self seed. Yellow and pink bell shaped blooms are held aloft strong, upright stems and are beloved by bees who dart in and out of the trumpets all summer.


Some people believe the name ‘foxgloves’ comes from the tale of fairies placing the floral trumpets on fox paws to mask the sound of their footsteps when hunting, leaving their own fairy footprints inside the blooms. It’s a magical cottage garden staple that provides colour, height and interest to any garden.
