Just bought one today, and the sun requirements say full sun to full shade! Ok, where do I plant it?

Foxglove can be pretty forgiving regarding the amount of light they get, but mine have always seemed to do best when getting at least partial sunlight rather than full shade. I'd lean towards more sun than shade, personally.

Ok, sounds good! Did not get any planting instructions, depth, mulch?

Welcome to All Things Plants, Denise!

Just plant it at the same depth it's growing in the pot, and mulch is fine -- I have foxglove in a northeast corner that just gets sun early in the day, and the soil stays quite moist there, growing with bleeding hearts, ferns, and hosta, and it seems that they are happy with that environment Smiling
