Native to woodland edges in France, the beautiful yellow foxglove (Digitalis grandiflora
) is one of the most useful perennials. Long-blooming, with multiple spikes of large, pale yellow tubular blossoms, yellow foxglove is a priceless addition to the partly shaded garden and makes a spectacular cutflower.
Plant the seed of this 2-foot perennial in light, well-drained humusy soil in part shade to full sun from spring through early fall. Hardy at least through Zone 5.
I've searched for a year to find the right source of French native wildflower seeds to offer you. Here they are! Certified organically grown, these seeds are produced on a family flower farm in the Massif Central
. One hundred percent of the process is artisanal, right down to the seed packets which are decorated with drawings of the content plants by the owner.
