Digitalis purpurea                       

Photographed at Brunswick Community College Supply, NC on May 14, 2004. A beloved biennial producing unrivaled pink or purple flowers amongst bell-shaped pendulous flower spikes.  As a biennial, it sprouts a large rosette of wrinkled leaves the first year, followed by freckled, bell-shaped flowers the second spring. Foxglove prefer semi-shade and a moist site in which to reach their fullest splendor.  Certainly admired for its long, tall inflorescence which often approach several feet tall.  The genus is the source for digitalin, an anti-arrhythmic medicine historically used to treat  heart disease. Native to the British Isles and cold hardy to zone 4.
