Foxgloves: A Field Guide

Where would a cottage garden be without foxglove? Or the Tuileries for that matter?

With more than 20 species that bloom in a spectrum of hues and at heights ranging from one to five feet, Digitalis is a well-loved middle-of-the-border flower. Foxglove stalks, covered in clusters of small flowers, are punctuation marks of color. Digitalis may merrily reseed itself and pop up where you least expect it next year, but never fear. It looks good in any spot it chooses.
