Foxgloves in a warm climate
I often read your posts on this forum. Sometimes it is bittersweet as I admire the flowers that I can no longer grow, since I moved from the south of England to the island of Crete in the Mediterranean Sea.
I was reading Kathi's comment on Glengarry's July blooms thread about not being able to grow foxgloves in southern California.
Two years ago, I decided to try a few foxgloves.
I had no idea if they would grow or not here, so I just tried a few of Digitalis purpurea alba. I put them in the shade of the apricot tree and they did wonderfully.
So much so that they have seeded profusely. So I look forward to an even bigger show next year.
So, Kathi, it is worth trying again. Keep them in the summer shade and they should do well.
