Default Digitalis indentification (lutea have exchange old grandiflora)


Around 3-4 years ago I obtained some seed from a seed exchange that was
supposed to be Digitalis lutea, however after looking at various pictures on
the web I am wondering if it might be D. grandiflora. Does anyone have any
definite identification points to look for in comparing the two plants?
The plants I have appear to be reliably perennial - I have one which is 3
years old.
I have posted some pictures on my web site @
http://www.paulgulliver.co.uk/Temp/

For reference the plant pictured is one year old and 45cm high (18 inches).

Thanks

Paul Gulliver

toothed or hairy. If the flowers are about 1" then lutea for sure. Those of
grandiflora are twice as long.
Best Wishes Brian.

Thanks for the reply Brian, the flowers are about 1" long so it appears to
be D. lutea.
