Ceratotheca triloba (South African Foxglove) [15 Seeds]

(3 customer reviews)


Germination Information: Start the seeds indoors in late winter to mid spring, just barely covered with growing medium, in a warm, bright place. These South African natives hate getting chilled, so keep them in a warm spot while they are growing. Set the seedlings outdoors once nights are consistently above 50°F or so. If you allow the seedpods to develop on the plant, you may find self-sown seedlings in that area next year.

Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

South African foxglove (Ceratotheca triloba) produces spikes of tubular, light purple flowers from midsummer to frost. In some spots, the plants will stay a tidy 2 to 3 feet tall; in other places, they’ll top out at 4 to 6 feet. (It’s hard to predict how they will perform in your particular conditions until you try them.) Either way, they can work beautifully as accent plants in mixed borders, add height to annual flower beds, and look charming in cottage-style gardens. Full sun to light shade. Grown as an annual in most areas (perennial in Zones 9 and 10).

Harvested in August and September 2022. At least 15 seeds.

    The seeds sprouted as advertised. Unfortunately, the squirrels worked against me when I transplanted, digging in and around the seedlings, despite measures taken. Grrrr. I would purchased again tho, I’ll just put them in a different spot
