Tall and stately Digitalis, or Foxgloves, have long been included in garden areas where vertical interest and lovely flowers are desired. Growing foxgloves thrive in full sun to partial shade to full shade, depending on the summer heat. The hotter the summers, the more shade the plant needs. Foxglove plants grow best in rich, well draining soil. Caring for Foxglove plants will include keeping the soil moist. As a biennial or short lived perennial, the gardener can encourage re-growth of foxglove flowers by not allowing the soil to dry out or to get too soggy. If flower heads are not removed, foxglove plants reseed themselves abundantly. Caring for the Foxglove plant should include keeping children and pets away, as all parts can be toxic when consumed. This may explain why deer and rabbits leave them alone. Hummingbirds are attracted by their nectar.
