Digitalis Firebird takes second place in new plant competition at Chelsea

Digitalis Firebird was awarded second place in the Plant of the Year competition at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. Against stiff competition from more than 40 other entries of new plant varieties, the judges picked out Firebird for its attractiveness, impact and garden qualities.
