Digitalis Purpurea

    Newer Older

    Digitalis purpurea is a flowering plant native to most of Europe and at this reason in my garden too.
    The flowers are typically purple but some plants, especially those under cultivation, may be pink, rose, yellow, or white.
    The flowering period is summer.
    Due to the presence of the cardiac glycoside digitoxin, the leaves, flowers and seeds of this plant are all poisonous to humans and some animals and can be fatal if eaten.
    But I promise I will not eat any part of this wonderful plant, I am only fond of its beauty. :-))

      I love these flowers. One of my favourites. We call them "Foxgloves". Fox is not the animal but from the word "folks" which used to mean "fairies", so they are fairies' gloves. Great name and image, and you've presented it brilliantly.

      Seen in my contacts' photos. (?)

      How can anything so pretty be so bad?!
      But let's don't eat them, just to be on the safe side. ;-)

      This is a very beautiful photo. I've always liked this flower/plant very much. Very beautiful flowering. And it's common to see them grow wild too. I think it has been used as a medicine plant "in the old days". In norwegian it's called Revebjelle (fox + bell).
