Straw foxglove (Digitalis lutea), also commonly called small yellow foxglove, produces rosettes of slender green leaves with 2- to 3-foot-tall spikes of small, light yellow flowers in early summer. This species is not as showy as common foxglove (D. purpurea), but it is the only foxglove that has lasted for many years in my garden. I think it’s particularly pretty paired with blue- and purple-flowered partners, such as bluestars (Amsonia), catmints (Nepeta), and Jacob’s ladders (Polemonium). It also looks terrific interplanted with columbines (Aquilegia) of pretty much any color. Full sun to partial shade. Perennial; Zones 3 to 9.
Collected in August 2021. At least 30 seeds.
