Foxglove is one such plant that seems to have fallen by the wayside as trendier perennials steal their limelight. And although most foxgloves are biennials, newer cultivars and hybrids have the staying power of true perennials. Biennial or perennial, depending on the species. Both the common and botanical names of foxglove refer to the resemblance of the flowers to the fingers of a snipped-off glove. They grow along the length and sometimes fully encircle tall spikes that taper toward the top like cathedral spires, rising dramatically above low-growing rosettes of dark green foliage. The color palette is primarily soft pastels, often accentuated by darker speckled or veined markings.

Q: I bought a foxglove plant last spring for my front garden from the perennial section at my local store. I trimmed it down in the fall. For some reason it did not come back this year. However, I read that some foxglove varieties are second-year bloomers and then they die. Any insight would be much appreciated. A: Camelot Rose is a tall foxglove with pink bells that have maroon spots inside. The leaves are deep green. It is often sold as a short-lived perennial. Unlike most biennials, it blooms the first year from seed; like most biennials, it dies after the second year.
Foxgloves, however, do rather freely self-sow. Ideally, the plant should be cut to the ground the first year then allowed to set and sow seeds the second. I can't determine whether you got a second year plant or just had one that died over the winter. Hardiness should not be a factor since the plant is rated hardy in ZonesIdeal growing conditions would be in a spot with partial sun to full sun with moderate to moist soil that drains well.
This plant Digitalis purpurea is highly rated for bloom and performance but like most foxgloves has a quite limited lifespan under the best of conditions. However, a healthy bed of foxgloves should produce enough seedlings to keep the bed, and a few others, well filled with new plants each season. Camelot Rose has, as mentioned above, the unique practice of blooming the first year, something most other biennial foxgloves do not.
The Strawberry foxglove Digitalis mertonensis is a short-lived years perennial with strawberry pink blooms. It is a cross between D. The Yellow foxglove D. It has soft yellow flowers in June, and if the stalks are trimmed, will often rebloom in September. This plant is sold as a perennial and hardy to ZonesQ: I have a bush-type magnolia that looks like it is 80 percent dead. What would you do — dig it out and replace or let it go for a while? A: First, you should investigate why this magnolia is in such poor condition.
Did you recently plant it? Was it healthy for years and suddenly declined? Have conditions around the plant — sunlight, drainage, nearby construction, changed the conditions? What are the current growing conditions and how do they compare to what a magnolia needs? What does a magnolia need?
Magnolias grow best in full sun to part shade. The soil should be moist but well draining with an ideal pH that is slightly acidic. It will, however, tolerate neutral or slightly alkaline soil. There are many different magnolias available so be sure to select one that is hardy in colder areas.
Two commonly planted in our area are the Star magnolia Magnolia stellate or select cultivars of the Saucer magnolia Magnolia X soulangeana. The best time to plant magnolias is when they are dormant, so that would be in late fall, winter or early spring.
If this magnolia is rare or has special significance, I would trim out the dead stems and give it a few seasons to recover, and correct any situational problems. If it is something easily replaced or conditions at that spot cannot be remedied, I would remove the old one and replant another, either in the same spot after conditions are improved or in a new, more suitable location.
It was quite wonderful last Sunday night to go to bed with the windows open and listen the rain falling on the parched garden. We did not receive torrential rain as others did, just a series of short but substantial storms that continued into Monday.While the rain total is very good news, we were still at a deficit for the month of May and the year.
Hopefully, the weather patterns will change, sparing the poor folks in Texas and Oklahoma and easing the dry conditions in the Northeast. So, driving through the Lehigh Valley this week, I should not see sprinklers or hoses watering anything already planted in the ground. Smart watering takes into account the wet times as well as the dry ones. Sow small sections of crops like beans, radishes, lettuce, and spinach at regular intervals to create a longer harvest.
Continue sowing: Snap, bush and pole beans, cantaloupe, melons, cucumbers, rhubarb, summer and winter squash. Cut Joe-pye weed back to three feet tall. Cut back candytuft to encourage bushiness. Shear back woodland phlox P.
Continue to pinch back new tips at two-week intervals until early July. Allow the greens to grow until fall and then cut back. Clip back iris stems as the blooms fade; divide crowded beds.
Divide spring blooming perennials after they finish blooming. Use a sharp blade. Photograph damage before clearing or repairing for insurance claims and file promptly. Keep mulch several inches away from foundations, tree trunks and other plants.
Reapply taste or scent deterrents. Clean up spilled seed and empty hulls. Clean and disinfect pots and trays used for seed starting and transplants. Slaan oor na inhoud. Spires of blooming foxgloves.
