Foxgloves are beautiful plants and as long as you don't eat the leaves, flowers or berries (seeds), it shouldn't cause you any problems. I've grown foxgloves in my garden for years. None of my children or my dogs or cats ever experienced a problem being near the plant. Hope you'll consider growing at least one - the flowers are really pretty!
