I’m not sure about this one as all Digitalis seems to want to eventually “go” back to purple (against the breeding) – ergo the species: purpurea… but that looks to be ‘Foxy’ …or maybe something in the ’Pam’s Choice’ ‘Elsie Kelsey’ mess… but I think ‘Foxy’

Foxy is an annual bloomer. (It only needs 5 months… so it is beating the biennial-ness innate to the species.) Are these annual bloomers? If so, it is Foxy.

Hmm. I’ll have to pay attention to that. I think it’s annual, yes. But it’s only recently that I’ve been taking loads of pictures as a way of keeping track of things.

I did a little excavation today while trying to pull out seed stalks for saving and spent stalks for straw. I found a tag and the tag says “Foxy”. Although the picture shows but white with spots and purple with spots so I’m confused.
