Bee Catchers, Dead Men's Thimbles, Fairy Bells, Fairy Fingers or, the most common name, Foxgloves. Traditionally associated with magic, fox gloves were supposedly given to the fox by fairies so he could creep silently into the chicken run. The leaves of the Digitalis family are poisonous, since they contain digitalin, a potent drug which slows the heartbeat and is still used medicinally.
Common name(s): Smooth Foxglove, Grecian Foxglove, Giraffe foxglove
