About Foxglove 'Apricot'
In the peak of summer, this plant produces majestic apricot-coloured spires of flowers that tower over rosettes of dark green leaves. With its unique colour, this foxglove can be a stunning addition to the back of a cottage-style garden, or it can create height and drama in a partially shady woodland area. It also pairs exceptionally well with plants that have purple or plum-coloured flowers.
In The Records
The Foxglove plant is a biennial that is indigenous to Europe, North Africa, and Central Asia. It is commonly known as Foxglove because its spike of flowers resembles a cluster of gloves. It was believed that areas, where Foxgloves grew naturally, were home to fairies, and so the plants were called fairies' gloves.
