Digitalis parviflora

Foxglove, Digitalis

Used in both medicine and poisons, these easy-to-grow biennials and perennials have tall spires of tubular flowers, fancied to have the shape of fingers of a glove (the Latin word for finger is digitus). They attract hummingbirds. The gray leaves grow at the bottom of the stalk below the flowers. Excellent for mixed flower borders. Self-sows, if old flowers are left until seeds mature and scatter. Sow seed or divide in spring. Also available in cell packs, 4-inch and gallon-sized containers in fall and spring. After first bloom, cut main stem so side shoots develop which keep blooming. Watch for slugs and snails.
