When grown from seed, Foxglove, a biennial, produces light green foliage the first year and will flower the second year. The flowers are long, tubular, funnel-shaped and dark rose-pink to purple in color with purple and white spots on the inside. These blooms are extremely attractive to hummingbirds and bumblebees. A late spring bloomer, Foxglove reaches it’s peak around the time that roses start to bloom. The individual flowers resemble a snipped off finger of a glove, hence the name ‘foxglove’. All parts of this plant are poisonous to ingest and may effect sensitive skin. Keep children and pets away. Ideal for vertical interest in flower beds. Will reseed easily so thin new seedlings to 18″ so the basal leaves can develop. Deer resistant!
