The tall spires of white common foxglove (Digitalis purpurea f. alba) add a touch of elegance to the garden in early to midsummer. It’s typically biennial, producing a broad clump of foliage the first year and then sending up 4- to 6-foot-tall flowering stems with pure white bells the second year. (If you cut off the flowering stems as soon as the last flowers are finishing, the clump might survive to bloom another year; don’t depend on that, though.) Try it in an informal border, in a cottage-style garden, in a woodland planting, or around a deck or bench where you like to relax in the evening, as the white blooms will stand out in low light. It tends to perform best in partial shade but can take full sun in cooler climates. Reportedly hardy in Zones 4 to 9.
