|I got a foxglove plant for mothers day. The flowers are falling off from the bottom up. I do have it in sun part of day and try not to water it too much. Is this normal for the flowers to fall off?
Because of the digitalis, is this plant poisonous for our cat?

|yes, it is normal for the blooms to drop starting at the bottom and work up. And yes, I do think it would be poisonous to your cat, though I'm not 100% certain on this. I just know I would stop my cat or dog from eating it to be on the safe side.|

|Welcome to Garden.org, @Balcony !
I agree with Rob about the blooms falling off; and also that foxglove are toxic to cats and dogs as well as to people. Here's a link to the "Pet Poison Helpline": http://www.petpoisonhelpline.com/poison/foxglove/
