Foxglove

  • Non-Native  
  • Biennial  
  • Bloom:  Summer
  • Propagation:  Seed
Foxglove is easily grown from seed. Foxglove is usually a biennial, even the "perenial" varieties usually last no longer than a couple years. Plant foxglove on the edge of the shade garden, it blooms in the late spring and produces seeds prolifically. People who water their gardens usually have no trouble with foxglove, it reseeds itself. The rest of us need to collect the seeds and sow them in a seed bed. Best done immediately when seeds are fresh. Move from seed bed before bloom.
