Bring vivid violet and pink tones to containers, beds, or borders with this lovely long-blooming inter-generic Foxglove.

This striking hybrid is the result of breeding between Digitalis and a Digitalis relative from the Canary Islands, Isoplexis. Dubbed Digiplexis™, this ground-breaking new hybrid is vigorous, long-blooming, and beautifully colored. Digiplexis™ enjoys the same uniquely beautiful bloom form as Digitalis, only with a magenta outer ring that has earned it the nickname "Foxglove with lipstick". The Isoplexis parentage contributes the red tones and increases their sun tolerance and disease resistance. Due to their natural hybrid vigor and the fact that these plants are sterile (and do not waste energy trying to go to seed), Digiplexis™ are bushy, fast-growing, and very floriferous.

'Berry Canary' is similar to its popular predecessor, Illumination™ Flame, except with more pink/magenta tones and a more compact, proportional habit that makes it fit nicely in containers and behave itself in landscapes. It is also a bit more cold hardy, surviving up to Zone 7. Another contribution of the Isoplexis part of the cross is that these plants grow woody trunks at the base that increase from season to season, unlike traditional Foxgloves that just grow a basal rosette.

Plant 'Berry Canary' in full sun to part shade in moist, well-drained soil and give it average water. With little attention, this healthy hybrid thrives in a wide variety of conditions. 4 to 6 weeks of vernalization at 45 degrees Fahrenheit is recommended for best flower. Due to its Canary Island parentage, 'Berry Canary' is hardy only up to Zone 7, though it is more-than-worthy as an annual farther north. The cutflowers alone make this one a must-grow! 1 Quart Container. Zones 7 to 11.

Note: Digiplexis™ is closely related to Digitalis and contains the same toxins as that Genus. This plant is a skin irritant and is toxic if ingested, so be sure to keep children and pets away.

Standout in the garden
Learning to garden in Oregon transplant from Duluth, Mn from OR wrote (December 30, 2014):
I live near the hybridizer and attend the plant shows where I was able to purchase one last spring. It bloomed later than my traditional foxglove and was shorter, sturdier stems brighter blooms and bloom time lasted in spurts over the summer. That was it's first year so a valiant amount of blooms and growth for year one. We'll see how it does over the winter in Zone 7. If I lived in a colder climate, I would experiment in potting it up and attempting to keep it somewhere away from animals and children to over-winter it.. I think buy 3 they will put on a show. planted in rich organic composted soil on front border of foxglove, they got more sun than the dappled shade morning sun situation for the traditional foxglove behind them. Planted them with white allium and cosmos. I am purchasing more due to lovely colo,r strength of stems, long bloom time and growth habit.. Probably these are deer proof .

Since its founding in 1920, Wayside Gardens has brought the rarest and highest-quality plants to the garden market. Wayside was founded in 1920 by two acclaimed growers who came together to pursue their shared vision of marketing all high-end plants for the serious garden enthusiast. Originally located in Mentor, Ohio, Wayside Gardens swiftly grew a reputation for the highest-quality plants and the most sophisticated clientele. In 1975, Wayside was purchased by the Park Seed Company, and moved to Hodges, SC.  The company has flourished since then, growing to become an undisputed leader in rare and unique plant growing.
