Digitalis obscura Sunset Foxglove is a fabulous flowering perennial heralding from the mountain regions of Spain. It produces an exceptional floral bloom display capturing all the tones of a glorious Mediterranean sunset.

Sunset Foxglove is sure to set your garden ablaze from late spring to early summer with this dramatic show of tubular bell shaped blossoms.
