Foxglove Seeds

Plant up your garden with this beautifully familiar, tall foxglove.

The tall foxglove (Digitalis purpurea) is a familiar wild flower found in heaths, woodland clearing and hedgerows. The tall stem has spikes of purple bell like flowers that appear between June and late September.

Did you know the wild foxglove will only have flowers down one side of the stem, whereas cultivars will have the flowers spiraling around the whole stem. It is a very popular bee plant and the humble bumble bee can often be seen right inside in the flower getting to the nectar. The foxglove plant thrives in most soils so would be a great addition to any wildlife garden. It is a great plant fore the Heath Fritillary butterfly.

The foxglove plant is also famous for being the source of the lifesaving drug digitalin (for heart failure), and because of this all parts of the foxglove can be harmful.

If consumed, seek immediate medicinal advice.

There are approximately 3900 seeds in the packet which are from cultivated stock. Please do not scatter any of the seeds into the countryside.

How your gift is doing good

At the Eden Project we believe plants are important to the future of us and our planet. Through our gardens and Biomes we inspire visitors to reconnect with the natural world around them - and to want to help preserve it. The money you spend in the Eden webshop goes towards our environmental education programmes.

Over 40,000 under-16s from 900 different schools visit our 'living classroom' each year. They get a unique opportunity to delve deep into the rainforest and form the vital connection with their environment that inspires them to want to conserve it.

Find out more about our plans to build a canopy walkway to continue our educational work around rainforests.
