Foxglove, Excelsior Mix (Organic)
Digitalis purpurea. Biennial / Perennial in zones 4-9.
Beautiful spires of bell-shaped flowers that range in color from white to pink and bloom in their second year. Bigger flowers with more bold colors than the wild foxglove that is established throughout the Pacific Northwest. Blossoms in early June for us. Flower spires grow to 6′ and are especially attractive to large bumblebees, moths, and hummingbirds. If the main stalk is cut, side shoots will form and bloom later into the season. Thrives in shade or sun. A biennial that can often re-sprout as a short lived perennial. May self-sow but is not invasive. All parts of this plant are poisonous.
