    I remember them from my childhood in Germany where they grow wild in the forest. I tried to grow them quite a few times here in East Central Kansas, but they don't survive. You are so lucky! They are beautiful!

    I should have said that clearer. My bad. My foxglove had spread and I actually dug up a small plant that had branched off. Not an actually cutting. I put it in a pot and it has already bloomed in its' new home these past couple of weeks. It is finished

    I had a surprise showing of Foxglove in my country driveway. I figured out that a bird must have eaten a seed and deposited it with a poop, into my driveway. It made me very happy to see it a midst a number roadside weeds. I would definitely spend the

    The first heart medicine, Digitalis, comes from this plant. I think they make it synthetically now, but for years this was a very important medicinal plant, because they extracted the digitalis from the plant. And yes, it is poisonous, that is why the

    Foxgloves grow wild here in the Puget Sound area, and take well to being transplanted. I put two in pots on my porch, flanking the door, and have a whole row of them along the morning side of my house as well as others scattered about. Although they're

    Well, the latin name for Foxglove is digitalis! And it will mess up your heart rhythm and may cause cardiac arrest if enough is ingested. If you have kids and pets, be very careful.

      Gini You have to actually eat quite a large amount of leaves to have a real problem. Many common plants are poisonous, including Tomato plants (the leaves and stems), Azalea, Daphne,

      Holly Faust I don't think that will affect the soil. I would be much more concerned if you were using regular salt.

    I think I have lost my beautiful Foxglove plants. All three seem to have not survived the bad winter we had. I mulched but I still am not seeing any growth. I live in Ohio. Is anyone else experiencing this? Very sad. they were so pretty.

      Marie Campbell I am sorry to hear that. They are a biennial so last summer may have been their last year for the plants but typically they reseed readily. I must say mine are

    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
