The Q&A Archives: Dying Foxglove

Question: My foxglove plant was planted two weeks ago and was doing great until 2 days ago when I noticed its leaves were wilting. Not all of them, but more the next day. There are no visible signs of pests. Any thoughts?

Answer: I suspect your plant is reacting to the stress of having been transplanted. It sometimes takes a little while for the stress to manifest itself. I'd water the plant deeply once each week and give it time to adjust to its new home. I hope it perks up soon!
