I've no idea what sort of foxglove this is, but I found it at Wisley when I was there in August.
Comments and/or criticisms and suggestions are very welcome. Thanks for looking and for your time.
Many thanks to Phil1963 - he's researched this and found it's called the Rusty Foxglove!! Nice name and definitely one for the RAS... so I've changed the title !!
Very well captured Ann, it looks a little like frost on the leaves. I like the background too. Nicely done Ann.
never seen these before ... incredible looking
Beautiful close up Ann, not seen one of these before,
Lovely work here Ann.
I think these are them
Digitalis ferruginea var schischkinii

Thanks Phil - I've just looked it up and you're right. Seems the common name is Rusty Foxglove!
Well,it just goes to show Ann,
you can get rusty flowers !!
Brave central compositioning. Works really well.
Awesome image, Ann. Well seen and captured. Deep
A most unusually coloured foxglove, but absolutely laden with those individual bells: fine floral presentation, Ann.
Looks good and the background works a treat.
Wonderful colours and processing Ann
A wonderful image, Ann, love your composition, the colours, textures and patterns are superb and such fantastic detail.
Well done real cracker.
What an unusual colour, Ann, and a lovely capture. Spotted and captured in my favourite place, too Carol
Lovely shot Ann. How did you get that wonderful textured background? Ann
never seen one before fine capture of it
Rust seems to be everywhere these days. Texture, detail, resolution and background are top notch, Ann. So well done!
It certainly looks like a rusty foxglove.
And each flower seen head-on looks like a tiny bearded dwarf, his head thrown back in song!
I would have said a very hairy foxglove. Intriguing!
Fascinating & beautiful shot !!!!.....never seen one this 'colour', & so er, 'feathery' ????
Beautifully captured. There are quite a few different Foxgloves, all beauties!
Superb processing Ann and greatly presented.
Never seen foxgloves like that before! very nice flowers and great presentation like it regards leon.
Lovely detail Ann. Very nice.
A beautiful capture Ann.............Sandy
Its a lovely colour for a foxglove Think I prefer it to purple, and I love the fluffy bits
I'm surprised most flowers haven't turned rusty this summer. Definitely a new one to me, Ann, and what a beauty it looks. The bg texture shows it off well, too.
Love the green BG Ann, it really makes the lovely Fox Glove stand out.
That's a cracking species Ann and a cracking image which shows it off so well.
Most unusual and engaging.
A beautiful coloured foxglove,lovely capture Ann..Lin
It's a beautiful flower and superbly captured Ann
A most appealing image!
You can get cultivated foxgloves which tend to be a tighter form like this one and vary in colours - this is a beauty and so very well detailed with all those little hairs catching the light.
A most enjoyable and well presented image.
A good shot Ann - not one I have ever seen before - quite an attractive foxglove
The detail here is outstanding Ann
great colours to match
A rather brilliant observational piece Ann, which you have gave the Foxglove you full attention, stunning detail, and a rather beautiful yet unusual colouring, which reminds me of delicious caramel rippled ice cream.
Lots of furry tongues after the night before, Ann. I think mine has looked like one of these a few times

A very unusual foxglove, never seen this variety before
