Description

Digiplexis  di-gi-PLEX-is

Digiplexis is a hybrid plant cross between a foxglove (Digitalis purpurea) and Canary Island foxglove (Isoplexis canariensis).  It is important to note that these hybrids are only hardy to zone 7 so we use them as a long-blooming annual in Northern climates.  The plants are sterile so they continue to bloom as they won’t put energy in to seed production.  Reaching heights around 36″ and a width of 18″, these are excellent in the full-sun border.  They will tolerate part-shade but full-sun in moist, well-drained soils. Once they start blooming, they simply keep going.  They also attract bees, butterflies and hummingbirds.
