Digitalis puzzle

This was grown from D.lutea seed, but lutea is yellow

Flowers are the same size and shape as lutea.
Any comments?

It is said by some, that Digitalis lutea will hybridise.
'Glory of Roundway' is said to be a lutea hybrid.
And looks a bit like your plant.

Identified as Digitalis fucata, a hybrid between lutea and purpurea.
