Foxglove, Purple (Digitalis purpurea) potted plant, organic

(1 customer review)


Family: Figwort (Scrophulariaceae)

Hardy to Zones 4 to 8

Biennial native to Western Europe, currently distributed worldwide.  These are standard form foxgloves and in my opinion they cannot be improved upon. This is a potted plant in its first year of growth and will not flower until the second year.  Traditional usage (TWM): Cardiac stimulant.  Do not eat or otherwise ingest Digitalis plants.  Plant prefers part shade to sun and likes an acidic, forest-derived soil.  The larger the plant grows the first year, the more incredible the flowering display in the second year.  Once planted to the landscape, these do tend to self-seed and acclimatize.

Potted plant, certified organically grown

    Plants arrived moist after making a cross country trip to NC- wasn’t able to plant them when they arrived, and as a fault of my one one got rather dry; however, once planted near second-years of the same variety, both are doing extremely well and are bushing nicely- they do much better than the first year plants I’ve gotten at chain nurseries or from anyone remotely local. Am extremely pleased.
