Foxglove digitalis, how much do your hummingbirds like them?
Hello everyone. I recently found for sale some rather large foxglove "seedlings", and bought and planted 8 of them. They're the "Camelot mix" variety. I'm really happy so far, as they've already started flowering and look lovely.
Since my whole purpose is to plant a flower bed that will attract local hummers, I wanted to know everyone's experience with foxglove and hummingbirds. Most of what I find online all says the birds love'em, but I'd like your second opinion ;) I planted a hybrid, but is it better to stick with just wild foxglove?
Also, my neighbour will be putting in a new fence sometime this year, and when he does I was thinking of planting lots of foxglove by it. I'd like to create a sort of wall of flowers by the fence, so any other suggestions for tall flowering plants that are hummingbird magnets would be very much appreciated!
