Digiplexis

Illumination Flame

Illumination Flame produces spikes of rosy-orange flowers from late spring until a hard frost in the fall. The extended bloom period is the key to this striking perennial. Use as a specimen plant in large containers or mass plantings in the landscape.

Digiplexis are lush, bushy plants that produce loads of flower spikes. Fast-growing. This hybrid is the best of Digitalis and Isoplexis increasing their sun tolerance and adding a bit more disease resistance. Although they are rated as perennial from zone 8-10 we would treat as a tender perennial or annual in our region.
