The Foxglove Story The very important Wild Foxglove, Digitalis purpurea is a native of the UK, naturalized in the US, and famous for being used for Digitalis, the life-saving heart medicine. However, Wild Foxglove is a biennial which often makes it undependable in perennial plantings. But since the twenties, there have been beautiful perennial foxgloves too, a little shorter, but just as beautiful as the towering purpureas.

The great breakthrough came when a cross was accomplished in Merton, England in 1928 between the famous biennial wildflower and the perennial species, Digitalis grandiflora. The perennial foxglove has ever since been called Digitalis mertonensis, named after the town. However, Mertonensis gives us only one color. Pams Choice is a white selection of this famous perennial, and makes a great contrast grown along with the red or apricot selections.

        I planted these maybe a few weeks late for them to bloom. I hoping that these will come up next year and give a great spiking splash of color to the back of the flower bed.

        The plants are healthy and grew during the summer but did not bloom. I am hoping that they will bloom next year.

                Foxgloves are so easy to grow from the plant form. I am currently trying out foxglove seeds (i literally just started the seeds last night)
                They are very nice for filling in the spaces in a woodland setting where there is a bit of light filtering in during the day.
                All in all these are good, hardy plants!

                USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

                To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

                • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
                • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
