Digitalis used to be called “Finger-flowers,” because its blossoms resemble the fingers of a glove with the ends cut off. Dwelling 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 the woodlands, especially when combined with Aruncus, Actaea or ferns.

This evergreen Foxglove is loved for its lush, velvety, dark green basal foliage. Its large flowers are tinged with rosy mauve and peppered with coppery sandstone. Divide after blooming to maintain as a perennial. Combine with Geranium ‘Langthorn’s Blue’ to make a bold statement.
