This short-lived perennial produces spires of large tubular flowers that are enchanting vertical accents in the sun or partial shade garden. The flowers are in colors that include cream, pink, purple, yellow, and white.
Foxgloves look wonderful in a woodland setting, and they attract hummingbirds and butterflies.
Sow Foxglove wildflower seeds in late spring to early summer outdoors in a well-prepared seedbed. Sow the seeds on the surface and press them in gently. Keep the flower seeds and soil damp until germination takes place.
