The Vibrancy of Purple Foxgloves

Foxglove is a flowering plant that belongs to the genus Digitalis. It can be found in the temperate regions of Europe but it has also been naturalized in some parts of North America.

Apart from being a beautiful ornamental plant, another thing that makes it popular is the fact that it is what’s used to make the heart medication called digoxin.

This herbaceous biennial plant can grow up to 35 centimeters long and 12 centimeters wide. It has flowering stems that measure one to two meter tall. Its flowers grow in elongated clusters and have tubular pendant shape. Most foxgloves are purple, as you can see in the photo above, but there are also yellow, white, and pink colors.
