Digitalis General Information

Digitalis are a staple of the cottage garden. Foxgloves wave their spikes in the breeze without staking. Ranging in color from creamy yellow, pinks and roses to maroon, the tall flower spikes with their charming tubular flowers add both height and vertical accent to your garden. Hummingbirds and plump bumblebees adore them. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Digitalis Plant Care

Prefers acidic moist soil with good winter drainage. Damaged foliage can be cut back to basal rosettes for a flush of new growth. Can be divided in spring or fall every 3-5 years. Cut the flowering spike to the base as it finishes and several smaller spikes will appear, extending the bloom time. Leave new fall growth at the base of the plant to overwinter. Allow self seeding to ensure future generations. **Leaves and seeds of this plant are toxic if ingested.**
