I'd like to plant foxgloves in this bed, but there's a bewildering number of varieties now so would love some suggestions!
Back left is a new sarcococca confusa and some common aquelegia. Centre is a new Japanese anenome (September Charm), back right are four fuchsia 'Berry'. At the front are some relocated geraniums & alchemilla mollis. It's all a bit higgledy piggledy, but planning isn't my strong point!
Soil is dry, sandy, acid, and it's mainly shade.
OH likes 'bog standard' foxgloves so anything not purple or white is probably not an option, but I think if you can have something that flowers for longer, without the lower flowers all over by the time the top ones come out, why not? Also, heightwise, as the sarcococca isn't likely to get to be much over 4-5', I don't want anything too tall.
Also, when is the best time to plant - autumn or spring? I did try to grow foxgloves from seed once but without any success, and it would also be nice if they flowered next year. And if it's a biennial variety, I can always plant more a year later.
