I am trying out some new Digitalis purpurea 'Camelot' Foxglove

Camelot seed bred by Goldsmith Seeds is available as individual colors (cream, lavender, rose and white) or as a mixture from various seed distributors.


Digitalis purpurea ‘Camelot’ is the first Foxglove F1 hybrid which will yield more first and second year blooms and it has added superiority in crop uniformity and strength. Although most Foxglove is planted in shady areas, ‘Camelot’ can be grown in sunny areas with adequate moisture and lower temperatures. In late spring or early summer 'Camelot' will send up flower stalks 3 to 4 feet high and will be laden with beautiful tubular flowers that have speckled throats. The flowers are a mix of colors in shades of Rose, White, Lavender, and Cream. This is a gorgeous addition to any perennial border. Digitalis purpurea ‘Camelot’ will reach 42-48" tall with a 24-30" spread at maturity.

Hardiness: USDA Zones 4-8
Plant Use: Flowering Perennial
Exposure: Full Sun to Part Sun
Water Requirements: Medium
