Chinese Foxglove

Chinese Foxglove (Rehmannia Angulata Rosy Purple) - Rehmannia Angulata seeds can be grown as annuals in all climates and as perennials in USDA zones 7 - 11. Commonly referred to as Chinese Foxglove, this beauty does well in full sun or partial shade, and the Chinese Foxglove plants continuously produce large, foxglove-like flowers from late spring through fall. The flowers can measure 2 - 3 inches across and are rosy purple with spotted throats. Chinese Foxglove is great in the flower border, and the flowers are nice for cutting. A synonymous botanical name is Rehmannia elata.

How To Grow Chinese Foxglove From Seeds: Sow the Rehmannia Angulata seeds indoors in the late winter. In a starter tray using quality soil, press the flower seeds gently into the soil.
