Foxglove (Digitalis Purpurea Excelsior Mix) - This mix is perfect for the cottage garden or bordering the back of the perennial garden. These tall stately beauties easily establish from Foxglove seeds. This biennial or short-lived perennial produces spires of large tubular flowers that are enchanting vertical accents in the sun or partial shade garden. The flowers are in colors that include cream, pink, purple, yellow and white. They bloom in late spring or early summer and if the main spike is cut, side shoots will develop and flower until September. Foxgloves look wonderful in a woodland setting, and they attract hummingbirds and butterflies.

Sow Foxglove wildflower seeds in late spring to early summer outdoors in a well prepared seed bed. Sow the seeds on the surface and press them in gently. Keep the flower seeds and soil damp until germination takes place.
