Chinese Foxglove ( Rehmannia elata )
Rehmannia elata Chinese Foxglove. A Perennial with large showy flowers over late spring and summer. Plants gradually spread if grown in a favourable location. During winter the plants die right down. A closely related species is one of the 50 plants in traditional Chinese medicine. Flowers are much larger than ordinary foxglove and flowering continues throughout summer and into autumn.
Germinate seeds at warm temperatures in early spring for eventual transplanting into the garden at the start of summer. Seeds are small so cover the potting mix with a 5 mm deep layer of course sand and sow the seeds on top so that a light sprinkling will wash them down to a sheltered position.
