Answer: Based on your description, I am not sure exactly what the bloom looks like on your plant, but most foxgloves will put up a central stem with a large bloom on it followed by some much smaller sideshoots which also have blooms on them, albeit smaller ones. If you deadhead the largest central bloom you may find additional blossoms follow. The best visual effect can be achieved by planting a grouping or drift of at least three to as many as seven or more plants. Finally, the plants themselves do best in a very rich soil that is evenly moist yet well drained and the more perennial types such as the strawberry foxglove (D. mertonensis) require frequent division to maintain peak vigor and bloom to their fullest. The more biennial types however may put up a weak bloom the first year followed by a much better display the second year.
