35. Foxglove
(Digitalis purpurea L.)

35. Foxglove

On banks and by hedges, in rough heath, and in woods and copses, the Foxglove grows and thrives. Its tall spike of rosy-purple flowers springs from a rosette of large downy leaves. The flower sprays may reach a height of from two to four feet. It often grows in large colonies which, when in full bloom, can provide a wonderful mass of colour. It flowers from July to September.
