Chinese Foxglove (Rehmannia Angulata Rosy Purple) - Rehmannia Angulata seeds can be grown as annuals in all climates and as perennials in USDA zones 7 - 11. Commonly referred to as Chinese Foxglove, this beauty does well in full sun or partial shade, and the Chinese Foxglove plants continuously produce large, foxglove-like flowers from late spring through fall. The flowers can measure 2 - 3 inches across and are rosy purple with spotted throats. Chinese Foxglove is great in the flower border, and the flowers are nice for cutting. A synonymous botanical name is Rehmannia elata.
How To Grow Chinese Foxglove From Seeds: Sow the Rehmannia Angulata seeds indoors in the late winter. In a starter tray using quality soil, press the flower seeds gently into the soil. Keep the Chinese Foxglove seeds consistently moist until germination occurs. Transplant the Chinese Foxglove seedlings into 3 inch pots and let them grow on indoors until all danger of frost has passed. Harden the Chinese Foxglove plants off for 10 days or more before planting outdoors. Provide winter mulch for extra protection in zones 7 and 8.
