Foxglove is one of the most unique flowers you will find and a great way to level-up your gardening game. Candy Mountain is unique among digitalis for its upward-facing flowers as opposed to downward facing ones, we thought this unique attribute made it worth giving a try since it allows passers by to see not only the large bell shaped flowers, but also the attractive speckled throats of the rose pink blossoms. 

Foxglove is best planted in fertile soil along the edge of a wooded area, fence row, hardscape or border where its vertical appearance can draw the eye and break up hard lines. It is a great plant for cut flowers and works well in a patio container with another low growing perennial.

In case you ever find yourself in garden trivia: the name 'digitalis' is derived from the German name 'fingerhut', which means 'finger house' or 'thimble'. It is also used to make the drug Digitalis that can regulate an irregular heartbeat.
