Foxglove (Digitalis) can be biennial or perennial. With the biennial variety, which grows vegetatively the first year and blooms the second year, you can gather seeds to sow the following year. The perennial type of foxglove will resprout from the roots after you cut the main flower spike down. If the plant gets too big for it's garden site, dig it up in spring, break the roots into smaller clumps, and replant the clumps.
