Digitalis purpurea ‘Pam's Choice’
at Digging Dog

Digitalis

Foxglove

Digitalis used to be called “Folks Glove,” because its flower resembled the finger of gloves worn by “good folk” or fairies, who, like the plant, dwell in deep hollows and woody dells. This poisonous herb grows easily in any fertile soil, seeds itself freely, and lends a naturalized look at the edge of woodlands, especially when combined with Aruncus, Actaea, or ferns.

Digitalis purpurea ‘Pam's Choice’ full sun  partial shade

Tall stately spires grab our attention as closely arranged white buds morph into funnel-shaped creamy white blooms distinguished by deep maroon throats plus ruffle-edged tips with burgundy spots and splotches. Sprouting an attractive evergreen basal rosette of oblong medium green foliage, this perennial’s good-sized undemanding stature can grace a border, a cottage garden or more informal setting, while its ornate self-sowing flowers make a luminous statement against dark-leafed shrubs or hedges. Introduced by Wayside Gardens, ‘Pam’s Choice’ resists deer, lives longer if its blossoms don’t set seed and thrives in organic-rich moderately moist acidic spots that drain well.

Blooms May–July

Size: 3' 0"–4' 0" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 4.
