A modern, wild and romantic garden isn’t complete without a Digitalis purpurea. This dreamy plant, also known as foxglove or lady glove, is native to Europe, where you can find him growing in the wild almost everywhere. With its pastel-coloured flowers and funny shapes, the plant looks great in a planter or flowerpot on your balcony as well. Bees and bumblebees absolutely adore this plant, and will thank you for putting one in your garden!
Water your foxglove about once a week; this plant doesn’t like to get his feet wet. Cut the plant down to the basal rosettes when it’s finished flowering. That way, you’ll get a whole new set of flowers next year. Do make sure you’re wearing gloves when handling this plant, as its leaves and flowers are poisonous.
The Digitalis purpurea enjoys a spot in the sun or half shade. You don’t have to worry about bringing this plant inside come winter, he’ll survive the colder weather just fine.
