My friend Sarah calls this the poodle plant. The foliage is evergreen and in autumn the dead flower stalks can be taken in and dried. If you are as Blue Peter as me you can spray them gold and silver for christmas decorations

These lovely white foxgloves were grown from seed by my friend Hannah Bielenberg. They have seeded themselves ever since.
