Digitalis Panther is a new product from Takii and is being launched in conjunction with four selected distributors: Florensis, Ball, Graines Voltz and Rudy Raes. The garden plant is being grown in various pot sizes by a number of European growers.
The new Digitalis Panther has a very natural appearance, thanks to a bushy habit with a large number of shoots with an impressive number of flowers. The flowers are quite unusual in terms of both shape and colour. The elegant pink flowers immediately catch the eye. The inside of the flower reflects the name – a bold animalistic pattern: Spotted Sensation.
Growth, flowering and sustainability
Digitalis Panther has a proven strong character and can grow in a wide variety of (climatic) conditions. It blooms for a long time, it flowers continuously from early spring through to late autumn. The nectar in the flowers is very appealing to bumblebees and honeybees, and thereby contributes to the survival of these pollinators. The Panther is a perennial, and therefore fits perfectly in a sustainable garden.
Ideal garden plant
The sturdy Panther has a compact growth habit with short stems packed with flowers. It grows to a medium height up to 50 – 90 cm (whilst other Digitalis varieties are often taller). This means it can be easily used in any garden (or public planting project). It looks very attractive in large pots or planters – or in beds, of course. But Digitalis Panther offers another benefit. The plant does not produce any seeds (non-invasive) so that the plant will not reseed itself.
