Digitalis (Foxglove)  dij-it-TAL-ihs

Within the Digitalis genus, there are several biennial, perennial and shrub species that all carry the common name foxglove, but the one most popular as a garden plant is the common foxglove—Digitalis purpurea. Common foxglove is a uniquely eye-catching plant, a tall, slender specimen with tubular blooms, often with colorful speckles. It is a fast-growing plant that generally flowers in its second season before dying.
