Foxgloves are hardy in USDA zones 4-10 and thrive in full sun (light shade in hot climates).
They prefer moist, well draining, fertile soil but can survive drought and almost any other growing condition.
The four to six foot spikes of bell shaped flowers appear in late spring to early summer
Foxglove flowers are primarily either white or shades of pink to purple but in recent years hybrids have appeared which include lower growing variations with yellow to gold blossoms.
Growing Foxglove Plants from Seed
Foxglove seeds can be sown directly in the garden in the spring until mid summer and will bloom the following year. Sow Foxglove seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before your last expected frost date.
Keep the temperature within the growing medium at 70°
Germination will take place within 15-20 days.
Plant 15-24 inches apart in the garden in the spring for blooms the first year.
Foxgloves easily re-seed themselves.
