The Foxy Hybrids Foxglove Mix blooms in soothing pastel shades of pink, purple yellow, cream and white all with burgundy, spotted throats. This foxglove blooms the first season from seed so plants are shorter and sturdier. Deer resistant and able to handle part-shade, foxglove make great edging plants along woodland areas where they may naturalize. Best known as a popular bouquet flower and for its ability to attract hummingbirds. (Digitalis purpurea)

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).

Plant Information
These new Foxy Hybrids have been a sensation, since they solve the big problem about foxgloves--they're biennials, which mean they don't bloom until their second season. The Foxys bloom the first year, and have extra-bright bi-colored blooms. As with all the others, these are great for shaded areas, especially good at a woodline, or under overhanging branches.

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.
