DIGITALIS

Commonly known as Foxglove

All JUN-JUL

Genus of 25 species of biennials, perennials and shrubs from Europe, the Canary Islands and Madeira, northwestern Africa and central Asia, generally found in open woodland.

D. purpurea is the common and well-loved foxglove though etymologically probably refers to fairy bells rather than Reynard's mittens.

The medical use for this dangerous plant was discovered in 1785 by William Withering. Effects were recognised  but not understood.
