Wild Foxglove Plug Plants Digitalis purpurea
Common names include, goblin gloves, witches' gloves and dead men's bells.
Wild foxgloves can be biennial or perennial plants and grow in the wild throughout the UK in gardens, woodlands, heathland and roadside verges. Their pink purple tube-shaped flowers grow on tall spikes and can be seen from June to September. Plants can grow to 2 metres in height. Wild foxgloves grow in all soil types in sun or shade.
One of the RHS Plants for Pollinators, wild foxglove is an important source of pollen for bees.
Sourced from native seed and grown for us in the UK, our plug plants are an ideal way to boost species in a wildflower meadow or to easily establish plants in your garden or in areas where seed germination can be erratic.
We recommend planting 5 plugs per metre square in groups of at least 3 per species for a naturalistic look.
