Answer: Most foxgloves are biennials; during the first year of growth, the plant produces a low-growing rosette of leaves only. In the second year it flowers, produces seed and dies. The plant perpetuates itself by self-seeding every other year.<br><br>'Foxy' is an annual foxglove. It could be that the first season you had enough warm weather, rain, etc. for the plant to complete it's life cycle, but last summer the plants didn't have all they needed to flower. The plants you see could be last year's plants coming up to flower this year, or they could be from seed dropped by the previous year's flowers. <br>It is strange that theplant would behave differently. I would first suspect environmental conditions, then consider that maybe some biennial seed was mistakenly sent, instead of the 'Foxy'. Hopefully, whatever is coming up this year will give you some flowers!
