Peet Burg noticed one special plant in his nursery in 2011 and saved a seed from this; he gradually built up a stock and constantly improved it and has now developed a unique colour and a strong constitution.
This is the first time the plant has been made available.
Yellow foxgloves of the traditional type are rare in gardens - this new selection offers gardeners a much improved colour and a far longer season of flowering from secondary stems, making it an ideal plant for colour-schemed planting in sun or shade.
A robust, hardy biennial for sun or light shade on average soils. Good in borders or summer tubs.
It is being launched at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2017 and entered into the RHS Chelsea Plant of the Year competition.
