Plant Finder: about the Digitalis genus

Common names



Digitalis genus (Foxglove). There are about 20 species of biennials and perennials some of which are evergreen. It will bear tall spikes of tubular, 2-lipped flowers which will grow in various colours i.e. purple-shades, white, cream, yellow and pink. The leaves are simple mid-green and entire or toothed. Digitalis is a drug widely used in modern medicine for the control of ventricular response in atrial fibrillation and the treatment of congestive heart failure. However, those un-trained in herbalism or medicine should treat this plant as poisonous.


The plants are hardy and will need sun or partial shade with humus-rich, well drained soil that does not dry out excessively.

Interest and use

Grown for their flower spikes in summer.
