Large Yellow Foxglove, Yellow Foxglove
Yellow foxglove is native to southern Europe, Siberia and Turkey. It is a biennial or short-lived perennial loved for its spring to summer tall flower spikes of pendulous pale yellow flowers which are tubular and marked with brown on the inside. Tall narrow-leaved stems arise from a clump-forming mound of medium green foliage. The leaves are oval to lance-shaped, soft and alternate on the flower stems. Both stems and leaves are softly fuzzy. The fruit is a capsule filled with seeds. Yellow foxglove self-seeds and new plants sprout in the same area as the original plant.
Plant yellow foxglove in a sunny spot with fertile well-drained soil. However, this foxglove will tolerate a bit of shade. Good moisture or irrigation and organically rich soils produce the best growth. Deadhead the old flower spikes to encourage re-blooming. Yellow foxglove is a good plant for cutting gardens, to provide height in borders and for woodland and naturalized gardens.
