Excellent as a cut flower, this very sturdy variety has flowers larger and wider than most foxglove varieties. As a biennial, it produces foliage the first year and flowers the second year' but it also self-sows readily, making it great for "naturalized" areas. Performs best in part shade. (approx. 2,000 seeds/pkt) Caution: All plant parts are poisonous if ingested.
