Foxglove, an Easy Cottage Garden Flower

04.27.15
Foxgloves grow like weeds here, a great plant to give your garden height in the late Spring and early Summer. Very easy to grow from seed.
  • Foxgloves come in a variety of colors.
  • Striking combinations
  • Delicate pinks with a reverse ombre effect
  • One of my favorites, pink outside and a creamy yellow inside
  • A signature cottage look
  • So easy to grow you will be digging up the extras to give to your friends.

    Well I am not giving up the hope that some seeds took and will eventually come through the earth. Seasons here are much later than Ca. so there's still time left for growth. If not I will get more plants. I didn't know they were Biennial. Now, I did
