Product Information

If you're looking for an eye-catching plant to add height and interest to your garden, then this hybrid foxglove will certainly add the 'wow factor' to your displays this summer.

Foxgloves hold a special place in the hearts of many gardeners and this remarkable variety is rapidly becoming one of the garden-designers’ darlings, with their stately spires cropping up in all of the latest contemporary gardens.

Digitalis Foxglove ‘Illumination Flame’ is an absolutely stunning perennial, producing multiple spikes of tubular blooms that will, simply, take your breath away. The striking flame-coloured tubular flowers are lightly speckled and shimmer faintly when illuminated by the sun giving real impact to any garden. Produced in abundance from early June to October they’re magnets to furry bumble bees and other beneficial pollinating insects!

Relatively compact compared to other foxgloves, ‘Illumination Flame’ is sterile which means that they will put all of their energy into making more blooms and don't make a nuisance of themselves by seeding everywhere. Plus, they have a naturally branching habit, which results in lots of flower spikes, makes these one of the showier varieties.

Foxgloves thrive in full sun, or dappled shade, and are very easy to grow indeed, giving gardens a wild and naturalistic feel or a smart contemporary look depending on where you plant them. Perfect for a pot if you're short on space.

Supplied as 3 x jumbo plug plants ready to pot on or plant out. Grows to H100cm x W50cm

Care Information

Planting Advice for Digitalis 'Illumination Flame':

  • On receipt, unpack plugs immediately and stand them in water for an hour.
  • If you can’t do this, they can sit in their mini greenhouse for a week if upright and not too wet.
  • Plugs may be slightly dry or yellow after being in a dark box in the post, but they’ll quickly recover.
  • Put them somewhere warm, light and airy such as a windowsill or greenhouse.
  • Pot up plugs and grow them on in warm, frost free conditions until all risk of frost has passed. Alternatively, plant them where they are to flower when all risk of frost has passed - plants are best grown in light shade in fertile soil.
  • When potting on, handle plugs carefully. Pot on using our 9cm pots in Shuttle Trays, using good multi-purpose compost.
  • Give your plants a good water initially, then only when the top compost starts to dry. They don’t like to be left in standing water.
  • Plant approx. 20cm (8in) apart to allow them room to grow.


Aftercare advice for foxgloves:

  • After flowering, cut back the main spikes to encourage a second flowering. Cut back to the ground completely after flowering to promote healthy, vigorous growth.
  • Although hardy, protect from frost with a thick layer of mulch.
