I started some digitalis last year from seed and set the healthiest out in mid-summer. They did well all through the remainder of the season (zone 7b), wintered nicely through some hard frosts / freezes and then took off when the weather broke in March. They looked fantastic with 3-4 foot flower stems and strong new leaves, but then started to rot from the bottom up. The flowers never formed, just pin-heads where they should have been on the stem. I had to dig them up this week for compost.
