Foxglove - Digitalis purpurea

SKU: 4.3

Tall and stately, with its hanging purple spotted bells, this is a plant loved not only by bees but also fairies. They were said to give the flowers to foxes to enable them to sneak magically into hen houses and away with their spoils. We have plenty of foxgloves and foxes and keep our hens securely penned. A biennial plant that will self seed freely.
