This plant, which has been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit, is an early flowering foxglove, which has  lovely soft peach coloured tubular flowers, speckled with light spots. It normally flowers in its first year from seed. It grows in full sun to partial shade , and forms a neat compact mound of foliage, from which the well-branched stems produce their pretty blooms in profusion.
