Info

A most distinct Spanish endemic from the area near Puerto del Pinar on open slopes with limestone rubble at 1,100m; this shrubby perennial species has distinctive shiny narrow foliage and amber yellow foxgloves marked with red on the interior. Previously offered wild collections by the Archibalds were only 20-30cm high but these may be expected to get a bit taller if grow in rich conditions, wonderful in a dry sunny site. ZONE 5

A shrubby Foxglove from S. Spain with thick blue green leaves and forming a clump of multiple trunks with sports 20" spikes of rust, orange-brown flowers in Summer. Full sun and well drained soil but good soil. Tolerant of drought when established. Cut back in early spring if the plant needs to be refreshed. Lovely on a dry hillside or in a grave garden. Combines well with Lavenders and Cistus. Amazing flower color.
