Operation Replant and Rebuild: Meet the Digiplexis hybrid to take the place of the eaten Dahlias. Cousin to a similar looking plant, the Foxglove. From my reading online, the squirrels should know to stay away. And if they don’t, well, either way the problem will be solved eventually, and I win.
And they are such *pretty* flowers. We are approximately zone 8, hopefully this will pernennialize and we can have it for a few years.
