The grey hairy foliage makes this perennial stand out. Shades of soft pink, sometimes white flowers, with lighter almost white throats. Each flower looks like it has a river of lava flowing from it. Will seed itself if flowers are allowed to set seed.
Around 2 feet tall so shorter than most foxgloves.
Many branching stems of flower prolong the show. Great for sunny sites or even dry.
Does best in light shade.
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.
