    Description Briscoe's Tips
    Digitalis purpurea
    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.
    Traditionally grown for its medicinal powers over the heart, modern medicine has found a use for its natural toxins to manufacture pharmaceuticals that prevent heart failure. These highly toxic plants should never be ingested as dosages vary and can become fatal for humans and some animals. These toxic chemicals are found throughout the whole plant and during periods of heavy pollination, can contaminate other plants growing nearby. Be careful not to plant edibles near Digitalis, for fear of this contamination. When measured in correct dosages, the Digitalis can help cardiopulmonary action by opening constricted veins and allowing more blood flow to the heart, strengthening its beat.
    Blooming from early to mid summer, this perennial is a major attraction to bees, butterflies and birds. A must for the Cottage Garden, try planting it 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!

    Size: 48"H 10"S

    Uses: Digitalis 'Foxy' is a beautiful tubular flower with marbled spots that will really liven up your garden with its showy colors. Used medicinally, toxins in the plant are used to treat heart failure and extracts are used in some modern pharmaceuticals.

    Tips: Never ingest the Digitalis plant! Highly toxic, it can be fatal to humans and some animals if taken internally in the wrong dosage.
