Foxglove Gloxiniiflora Blend Seeds

Digitalis purpurea

Item #1020

Biennial. "Excellent as a cut flower, this very sturdy variety has flowers larger and wider than most foxglove varieties. As a biennial, it produces foliage the first year, flowers the second year; but it self-sows readily, making it great for “naturalized” areas. Performs best in partial shade. Attracts pollinators and hummingbirds. Biennial in USDA zones 4—8.
Caution: All plant parts are poisonous if ingested.
