This is Digitalis purpurea. Yes, it grows like a weed in Britain. It takes a little more work in my hot, dry North Carolina woods.
That life cycle means Foxgloves are a biennial–one of the those plants that grow one year and flower the next. Then they die or at least look like death warmed over, so I pull them out.
I do sometimes see foxgloves for sale in big box stores–in bloom and marked “Perennial”. Don’t buy them. Buy seeds instead, or make friends with a foxglove grower like me, my sister or my good pal Susan.
I’ll put the first 5 or so who want to try it on a seed waiting list. Leave a comment and let me know. And Happy Spring!. Don’t you love this cool weather>
