A few years ago I have brought three seedlings of Foxglove from the coastal town called Vrsar, Istrian peninsula. I was wondering if they could survive the continental winter. Happy to say, they love it to be in my garden.
I planted them in the dry semi-shade and so far they are doing well. I am not sure which species it might be, maybe Digitalis lutea. They seed themselves very well too. Foxglove is a biennial, producing the young plant in the first season and flowering the next year.
As an ornamental plant, it looks good in a group or single among the other plants filling the gaps.
It also adds height into the borders. Cultivated foxgloves have bigger flowers, but I love my wild one very much.
Digitalis is a well known medicinal plant, used to treat cardiac diseases. The entire plant is actually toxic so, it is a small difference between the poison and a curing dose of the chemicals it contains.
