Isoplexis canariensis

The Canary Island foxglove does indeed belong to Scrophulariaceae, the same family as our native purple foxglove (looking great all over the Garden, along with its white cultivars lighting up the path from Brookside Gate). Its hooded, burnished apricot flowers have a metallic sheen and protrude agape from the stiff upright stems.
Isoplexis canariensis grows to form a woody sub-shrub, the petrol green leaves evergreen. It is rarely seen in gardens and is endangered in its native Canary Islands.
