Mass planting of the white form of Digitalis purpurea are attracting much attention in the woodland garden. These selected seedlings are sown and grown for one year, transplanted and flower during their second growing season. The flower spikes reach two metres and are covered in white flowers that en mass have the presence to draw the eye from 100 metres distance and more. Once in about them appreciate the humming of bees moving through to extract pollen and nectar from the pendulous tubular flowers.
