|Foxgloves usually flower and then when the weather is hot they can die down to ground level. If you're watering regularly, I suspect the problem is that it is just going dormant. When the plant turns nearly completely brown you can cut it off at ground level. You'll see new growth a little later in the year and next spring you should see lots of healthy new growth. When you cut the plant down, you'll also remove any insects that might be present.
