Foxglove




Foxglove - June - Haworth


Foxglove

Tall perennial growing to a height of 1.5m. This plant is also classed as a biennial, plant growth in the first year and flowers in the second year.

Mostly reddish-purple colour but white variety can also be seen.

The name Foxglove seems to have originated as 'Folks-glove' the flower shape similar to finger gloves. Its latin name 'digitalis' also suggests a connection.

Parts of the plant are poisonous to humans and livestock.
