Plant Information

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.

      Comments about American Meadows Foxglove Camelot Lavender:

      I don't even know what they sent me. When I opened the box, the pot that was supposed to contain the foxglove was missing soil (it had spilled) and contained a dried up (very dead-looking) "plant". I had read that it was supposed to arrive in the dormant state so I attempted to plant it in the ground and see if it would bounce back. It practically disintegrated in my hands when I took it out of the pot and proceeded to crumble away once it was in the ground. What a waste of time. American Meadows gave me a refund because, by the time they got to my complaint, they were sold out of all of their foxglove plants. I ended up buying an established foxglove from a local home improvement store and it was lovely. Overall I am not impressed with American Meadows.

        Q & A

        Plant With These:

        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).
