Foxglove Mix


Foxglove is native to Europe.  This plant requires soil that is rich in organic matter.  It is a strong attractor of bees and hummingbirds.  If planted indoors, Foxglove can be successfully transplanted.  However, it does just as well if it is started outdoors from seed.  In hot climate areas, plant Foxglove in a place that is fully shaded. In cooler climates, it can be planted in full sun or partial shade.  This flower will not bloom the first year that it is in the ground.  Either a spring or fall planting of Foxglove will produce stable plants.

Note: Foxglove contains high toxicity levels and poses a serious threat to humans and some animals.  The leaves, flowers and seeds of Foxglove can all be fatal if ingested and the specific poisonous component in the plant is cardiac glycoside digitoxin.  Foxglove is used in molecular biology and is considered to be an herb.

The broadcast rate for seeding is 2 – 2.5 pounds per acre.

The seed drill rate for seeding in rows is 1 pounds per acre.
