Soil: Digitalis will tolerate a variety of soils-- as long as adequate drainage is provided, your plant should be just fine.
Comments: Please remember that Foxgloves are poisonous and should not be used by anyone for anything except enjoying it in the garden ... unless you are a bee or hummingbird, that is!
Digitalis 'Foxy' is a beautiful, showy bloom that will brighten up any garden! Commonly known as "foxglove" or "lady's glove," this attractive plant produces a mix of spotted colored flowers that grow in a tubular fashion. Supported by tall, upright stalks that are covered in velvety gray-green leaves, Digitalis prefers full sun but will tolerate some shade.
Blooming from early to mid summer, this perennial is a major attraction to bees, butterflies and birds. Try planting Digitalis in woodland gardens, as a border plant or cut-flowers. Leave some dead flower stalks to self sow for future flowers.
Please remember that all parts of Digitalis are poisonous if ingested!
