The Q&A Archives: Hybrid Tall Foxglove

Question: Where can I get a hybrid/tall (about 5 feet) foxglove plants?

Answer: Well, you could take a drive up to Coonskin Park and collect some seeds....(I'm from WV)! Other than that try Thompson & Morgan Seeds at 1-800-274-7333, their catalog lists quite a few of the tall varieties. Foxglove is usually listed as a perennial though they aren't reliably perennial in all climates. Many are actually biennial. Foxglove likes fertile, well drained soil with lots and lots of organic matter (compost, composted cow manure, leaf mould). Cut stems of spent flowers to promote rebloom, but leave some on if you want them to self sow. Plant in full sun to part sun.
