A bit disappointed that now that the foxgloves are starting to show their flowers to find that most are not actually apricot but deep pink with a few accompanying white/cream/light pink stalks. I'm assuming that the dominant plant from which this plant has been cultivated is pink. How have other people's plants fared? (Didn't help that quite of few of mine were ravaged by predators )
Comparing two foxgloves side by side, if one has noticeably paler veins it’s more likely to be white.
Funnily enough, I have those seeds too and was looking at them today considering whether to sow them. The packet definitely shows an apricot colour. If I had paid money for them and ended up with a colour I didn't want or intend then I'd be rather cross tbh.
Anyway, out of the 15 plants I kept, 3 look to be purple rather than apricot.
