Digitalis floribunda

Clustering foxglove is an earlier bloomer than some of the other foxglove species and a perennial.  It grows to 24″, producing yellow flowers in zones 3-9.  Like all foxgloves the plant contains alkaloids that are poisonous and while foxgloves have been used in herbal medicine they are not for the non-professional.  Instead, enjoy this lovely plant in your garden along with the bees.

Digitalis grandiflora

Large yellow foxglove is another of the lovely perennial foxgloves.  Growing up to 3 feet tall in zones 3-8 in partial sun, this is an easy going clumping perennial originating in Europe.  The flowers are a soft buttercream yellow.  Nothing garish about this foxglove.  Beautiful in any border, herb garden or cottage garden.  Bonus!  Deer are not so fond of the plants.  As with all the Digitalis plants, use as a medicinal is not advised except by well qualified and experienced practitioners as they can be deadly.

Digitalis laevigata

Digitalis laevigata, or Grecian Foxglove, is a towering perennial statement in any garden.  Growing to three feet tall, it produces bronze and white flowers that are quite distinctive.  Like all foxgloves it contains alkaloids that are poisonous and so is better used for its highly decorative virtues.  Also, bees love the foxgloves.

Digitalis lutea

Small foxglove grows to a height of 18-24″.  It is a perennial that grows in zones 3-9.  Plant in full sun to partial shade.  Produces pale yellow flowers in late spring to early summer.  All foxgloves attract bees and butterflies.

Yellow foxglove is traditionally used in the same manner as any of the digitalis plants for cardiac issues.  It is said to be less toxic than purple and wooly foxgloves, but as with all herbs, extreme care and professional advise should be used.

Echinacea angustifolia

Echinacea angustifolia is perennial and grows up to 4 feet tall in zones 3-7.  It prefers deep loamy soil in full sun and is reported to be a favorite salad for slugs, though that has not been my experience.  Multiple studies on this plant have found that the compounds increase the body’s resistance to bacterial and viral infection.  Historically, it has been used as an adaptogen, alterative, antiseptic, diaphoretic, and digestive.
