John Fielding, MPG member, had a new Digitalis offspring at RHS Chelsea Flower Show, Digitalis x valinii ‘Firebird’ (left). This foxglove won second place in Chelsea Plant of the Year and is a hybrid of Digitalis purpurea and D. canariensis. It is a very attractive apricot colour with an upright habit, multiple stems per plant and is hardy down to -5C. Our congratulations to John.
