FOXGLOVES IN LATE AUTUMN (晩秋のジギタリス)



We love foxgloves and they love the climate in our area.  
Every year we sow their seeds and raise seedlings.  
They grow well in a half (or more) shade and do well in boiling hotness of summer.  

In the kitchen garden, many foxgloves grow and some of them bear flowers now.  
Their flower stalks are rather lower than those in early summer, 
however, their colours are as beautiful as in early summer.  

These plants will bear hundreds of flowers on the tall stalk up to 6 feet next season.  
We look forward to that season.  



私たちはジギタリスが大好きですし、ジギタリスもここの気候が大好きなようです。
毎年種をまいて苗を育てます。
半日陰(あるいはもっと日陰)でもよく育ち、うだるような夏の暑さにもよく耐えます。

ポタジェではたくさんのジギタリスが育って、そのうち何株かは今花を咲かせています。
その花茎は初夏のよりはだいぶ低いですが、
その色の美しさは引けをとりません。

来年のシーズンにはこれらの株が180センチ近くまで高くなる花茎に何百もの花をつけます。
その季節が楽しみです。

  1. I love foxgloves, such hardy plants that return again and again all over the garden. Yours are lovely, especially at this time of year.

    1. Dear Dee,
      Foxgloves are absolutely ornamental and they play the lead in early summer with roses in our garden.
