Foxglove, Purple (Digitalis purpurea), packet of 300 seeds, Organic
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.
