Foxglove Primrose Carousel
T&M’s Foxglove Primrose Carousel 1999 Exclusive Flower of the Year
This exquisite new variety is a result of T&M’s investment into research and development. Believed to be the first primrose yellow foxglove with unique, large, claret speckled flowers, all around the stem. Add to this that it is dwarf, only 30 inches in height, and it is set to be one of the most gorgeous new varieties. A graceful garden plant, superb for large con
tainers and ideal for exposed situations.
