The Foxglove is a very well known plant with many garden varieties, however the native is usually pink, and occasionally white. It is a lovely statuesque plant for the back of the border alongside bellflowers, hellebores and stinking iris. Likewise in a woodland setting it looks amazing when growing through a glade, and enjoys damp roots but also some sunlight. The flower stems are produced in the plant’s second year, from June – September.
