Foxglove, a showy biennial bearing spires of deep pink tubular flowers in late spring and early summer, was grown in American gardens by 1735, and likely became more common after its medicinal properties were discovered in the late 18th century. Philadelphia nurseryman Bernard McMahon listed both the pink and white forms in his 1804 broadsheet. Deer-resistant.

Sow seeds indoors in summer and transplant the seedlings to individual pots before moving to the garden in early fall. The plants will establish rosettes of leaves before heavy frost and bloom late the next spring. Caution: Foxglove is poisonous if eaten. Approximately 850 seeds per packet.

Foxglove (Digitalis purpurea) is considered an invasive plant in the following state: CA.
