'Sutton's Apricot' bears flushed apricot-pink tubular flowers with soft yellow throats delicately freckled with dark red, in slender spires above dark green basal rosettes. Bees love it

Undeniably pretty, its unusual colouring and willowy form are fabulous for illuminating and lightening the back of a border, singing out against darker foliage, especially bronzed. Equally happy in a dappled woodland setting or cottage garden, it makes a great cut flower too. This biennial Digitalis prefers part shade conditions in a rich, fertile soil but can tolerate more sun

All parts are poisonous.
