Baa could be right. The leaves look strange to me, but it could be stunted in some way, or some of the leaves I'm looking at belong to something else. Foxy is a much shorter foxglove, tends to branch more, and is known to flower the first year if started early enough.
Well, Mimi, you're going to have to find out what those are since we're all curious now. You ought to get the nursery's e-mail address so that you can send the photo to them and get a reply as to what it is.
I don;t think Dj's nursery has time for email till the winter.! They are a small, family owned nursery. but. he has the BEST plants adn it is well worth the time it takes to go there. I bellieve I am going today. I will ask. PROMISE> I need some too! it is so tiny. i should take something and measure each glove. or cap,. or what ever you call them.
Well I am surprised! I've grown D thapsi for a few years and they have quite large flowers in comparison with the size of the plant, however I've not grown Spanish Peaks so the cultivar must be smaller flowered than the species.
I called him today from work while I had like 3 colors going. He was kind enough to keep an eye on them for me till I could get out ther today. I was thrilled to get them. guess I can say now that I have a "collection" of them. !lol...Hopefully one of the 3 will make it and live. Hopefully!
