Instructions: Direct sow 1 to 2 cm deep. Mid August to September.Self sows and makes a stunning statement when planted in larger quantity.


History: Foxglove is a native of Asia and Western Europe although it is not as commonly seen as in North America. Foxglove was first recorded in medical history in 18th century England, by William Withering (1741-1799)an English country doctor. It was also later recorded in Canadian history in the Great Lakes region near the St.Lawerence in 1959 by a botanist named Baldwin.
