Description

Stunning color and heavy, reliable first-year bloom

A formula mix of the four splendid colors in the large-flowered, vigorous Camelot family. In this packet Camelot™ Mix Hybrid Foxglove seeds you receive white, cream, rose, and lavender—all the best shades of the best Foxglove series to come around in a month of Sundays.

Camelot™ Mix Hybrid Foxglove doesn't waste a moment in your garden—plant this perennial in spring and before summer is here, Camelot™ Mix Hybrid Foxglove will be sporting its first display of fat buds, which burst into glorious bloom over a long, very profuse season. Earlier to bloom and much, much heavier than others (especially the first year), the Camelot series is the hands-down favorite for a long, lovely season of color in partial shade.

The secret of Camelot™ Mix Hybrid Foxglove success is breeding. Camelot™ Mix Hybrid Foxglove is the first-ever F1 hybrid, which means Camelot™ Mix Hybrid Foxglove simply has more vigor than any other variety you can grow. That means you get an entire extra season of color—none of this "half a dozen blooms here, half a dozen there" the first year, but a long, full, unbelievably colorful season. And for a short-lived perennial, that's very important.

Camelot™ Mix Hybrid Foxglove also helps that the blooms themselves are so breathtaking. The buds combine pale green hues with their eventual bloom color—ivory, rich cream, soft rose, and red-influenced lavender. And when the long, nicely crimped 1½-inch trumpets burst open, interior spots are revealed.

The blooms crowd tightly along the upper 16 to 24 inches of each stem—very showy, and the perfect complement to all your other Foxgloves. And if you think the first season was spectacular for Camelot™ Mix Hybrid Foxglove, wait until you see the second. This is simply a showpiece of a Foxglove for the partly-shaded bed or border, and we give Camelot™ Mix Hybrid Foxglove our highest recommendation—you just can't find a heavier-blooming, earlier, longer-seasoned variety anywhere, and Camelot™ Mix Hybrid Foxglove is so easy to grow.

Camelot™ Mix Hybrid Foxglove reaches 42 to 48 inches tall and about 24 to 30 inches wide. Situate Camelot™ Mix Hybrid Foxglove in partial shade and rich, moist soil, and it will put on a fine show for several seasons. Superb in borders, beds, and open woodland gardens. Space about 2 to 2½ feet apart.
