Foxglove ‘Illumination Pink’ in award-winning Chelsea gardens

Foxglove ‘Illumination Pink’ is featured in two award-winning gardens at the Chelsea Flower Show!

We were delighted to hear that two gardens featuring Thompson & Morgan’s Foxglove ‘Illumination Pink’ won awards at the Chelsea Flower Show this week.

The BrandAlley garden won gold and reflects on the private and public areas of people’s lives. It was designed by Paul Hervey-Brookes and built by Big Fish Landscapes.

The Miracle-Gro’wers Learning Journey gardens both won silver-gilt medals and involved school children growing their own flowers, fruit and vegetables in four different gardens commemorating the centenary of the Chelsea Flower Show and to show how gardens have changed.

Foxglove ‘Illumination Pink’ itself won an award in 2012 when it was named RHS Chelsea Flower Show Plant of the Year. Labelled the ‘impossible plant’, because of it’s unusual breeding by Thompson & Morgan’s own plant breeder, Charles Valin, ‘Illumination Pink’ wowed the judges and was given the top award.
