This one is relatively short so plant it near front of the border. Attracts hummingbirds and is deer resistant. Remove spent flower stocks so won’t self sow. New plants do not come true from seed. This is a very compact Foxglove and its individual flowers resemble the snipped-off fingers of a glove. Leaves of plants are highly poisonous. Raspberry-rose flowers appear between June and July.
