Description: Digitalis x mertonensis bears the typical tall spikes of large foxglove flowers but in an unusual crushed strawberry shade. It grows well and looks best in similar situations to the traditional foxglove, such as in a woodland clearing or amongst trees and shrubs.

Care: Plants are rather short lived, often treated as biennials, but clumps can be lifted and divided annually after flowering and replanted in well prepared soil to extend their life
