Description

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.

Now, the Foxy Hybrids take their places in the foxglove line-up, bringing all the colors back with the biennial issue solved.

Incredibly Prolific Bloomer

By Holly

from Gainesville, Fl.

Verified Reviewer

I ADORE my foxglove! The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is it does seem to be a little finicky to make happy (at least in Florida). But if you find the right light and soil, you will be SO RICHLY REWARDED! I had 4 plants to start with. 2 did not make it. I believe they did not like full Florida sun. Among the 2 that made it, one was planted in quite a bit of shade and it just now leafing out. I actually though it had died, but it's definitely popping through the leaves again! But one of them? ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE! It is planted beneath an oak tree where it receives a nice dose of full sun in the morning until about 11/noon time. Then it's shaded the rest of the day... And it is COVERED in blooms and just keeps bushing out bigger and bigger! I wasn't sure if its proximity to the oak would be a problem, but they seem to adore each other:) So if in Flroida give yours morning sun and it will LOVE YOU!
