"I'm totally gaga about the flower colors on the bell like blooms of Digitalis Goldcrest. The inch-long blossoms held on upright stems are a gorgeous peachy-yellow marked with maroon red spots. This charmer begins blooming in mid-summer and continues right on into fall. Give it full sun for the best flowering." - Ciscoe Morris
