Planting Guides

Growing Digitalis (Foxglove)
These Old World perennials bloom from late spring into mid-summer (depending on the variety) and are easy-to-grow. In some areas hummingbirds will visit them for nectar, as will bumblebees. Digitalis are considered poisonous and are not eaten by rabbits and deer. Avoid planting Digitalis where small children and pets can chew on them.

    Preferred growing conditions:
  • They grow well in most any type of soil including clay that doesn't sit wet.
  • Mulch with common mulching materials. Evergreen species (such as D. obscura and 'Honey Trumpet') like gravel mulch when planted in a xeriscape.
  • Most do well with regular irrigation to keep the soil moderately moist. The evergreen species are more xeric.
  • Plant in full sun or part sun.
  • Just a few handfuls of compost and Yum Yum Mix in the planting hole is enough. But biennial varieties like a richer, more water retentive compost enriched soil.
  • Special comments
  • Some seed-grown species can re-seed vigorously and should be deadheaded.

    Garden Care
  • Fertilize in the fall with Yum Yum Mix and good quality compost.
  • Deadheading is not necessary, but will reduce re-seeding of seed grown varieties.
  • Evergreen varieties (such as D. obscura and 'Honey Trumpet') should not be cut back except to deadhead. Herbaceous species should remain standing over the winter and cut back hard in mid-spring. Biennial varieties should be left undisturbed over the winter because they will bloom the following growing season, then die.

Q & A

Suggested Companion Plants:

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
