I purchased 7 foxglove plants from Home Depot 6 weeks ago. They are done blooming and I wanted to know when I can cut the stalks back. I live in Virginia/Middle South. Also will they come back next spring, the tag stated they were perennials. Thanks in advance.

Perennial foxgloves will come back year after year. When the flowers fade you can cut the flowering stalks down to foliage level to make the plants more attractive. They should look nice all summer. Enjoy!
