More Information About Digitalis

Digitalis is a popular genus of ornamental plants known for its tall spikes of tubular flowers in shades of pink or purple and for its use as a heart medicine. The flowers also attract butterflies and hummingbirds. We strive to make available true perennial orange and yellow flowering Digitalis species or cultivars that are not often seen in the US instead of the ubiquitous biennial Digitalis purpurea.

Digitalis plants prefer partial sun in the South, but also grow well in part sun. Foxgloves prefer acidic soil and do not like to be crowded by other plants. Although there are some perennial species of digitalis which are not long-lived, keeping the old flower stalks removed seems to help extend their life. Remember that digitalis produces a deadly poison that alters heart rhythm so do not eat your plants. When you 're ready to buy digitalis (foxglove) for your perennial garden, we hope you'll check out our online offering of digitalis for sale.
