Self-seeding short-lived evergreen perennial foxglove with particularly beautiful, tall, straight, very narrow spires of densely set, hooded, apricot-yellow flowers, brown netted in their throats. Dark-green leaves are glossy and narrow. Flowering over a very long period in summer. Sun or part shade in well drained soil. Drought tolerant in full sun and very poor soils, but happy in better conditions also.
