Foxglove - Summer King
DIGITALIS X MERTONENSIS
Chunky deep muted berry foxglove, often with a distinctive curve to the top of most stems.
Summer King is a biennial/perennial foxglove, so to flower within it's first year, it needs to be sown late spring to summer to flower the following late spring. They can be sown throughout the year, but they need to go through a winter as larger plants to properly flower in late spring. Summer King does have perennial tendencies so most plants will likely stay around for a few years.
