Foxglove, Purple (Digitalis purpurea) seeds, Organic

(3 customer reviews)

$3.95$23.55

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. Traditional usage (TWM): Cardiac stimulant.  Plant prefers part shade to sun and likes an acidic, forest-derived soil.  Strew seed on acidic loam soil in the part shade, press in firmly, and allow all the seedlings to express.  You will be rewarded with multiple flowering tops, classic, in the second year.  Another option is to start them in the shade house in pots and transplant out at a foot apart. Once planted to the landscape, these do tend to self-seed and acclimatize.

Packet contains 300 seeds
1 g contains ~12,500 seeds

    Question!

    They grew beautifully. I put a lot of work on them, started them in my little greenhouse. Some of them were so big, I put them in a very special spot. My husband accidentally mowed them to the ground, I’m devastated. Will they come back?

      hi bruna, sorry about that accident, these kinds of things do happen, we all have stories… Generally speaking biennials like foxglove are not sensitive to getting cut back because they will keep trying until they make flowers, and then they die back naturally. Maybe use the opportunity to weed around the stumps, water well, and given the season, they will indeed regrow. r

      Yes, they tend to come up according to their own microsite preferences, and it is often surprising, with this plant, where they choose to arise. What rich and inspirational blossoms!
