Foxglove Plant FeaturesTall spikes of tubular flowers with speckled throats make foxglove a must-have perennial for your garden. These lovely, sun-loving plants are a snap to grow and they look amazing planted in drifts or clumps scattered throughout your flower border. The deer-resistant plants grow 2 to 4 feet tall. Foxgloves are short-lived perennials, but do self-sow so you can keep enjoying them in your garden even after the parent plants die. Butterflies and hummingbirds love to feed on the nectar-rich flowers of foxglove. Hardy from zones 4-8.

Foxglove Growing InstructionsFoxgloves thrive in any sunny or partially sunny location. They prefer a rich, slightly moist soil so be sure to mulch the plants to maintain consistent soil moisture. If you remove the main flower stalk after the blooms fade you may encourage new side shoots to grow and bloom. However, always be sure to leave some flowers in place if you want the plants to set seed and spread. Remember, foxglove is a short-lived plant so letting it self sow is the best way to have new flowers every year.
Note: Human or animal consumption of foxglove should be avoided because the plants can be toxic.
