Foxglove (digitalis purpurea), an old-fashioned flower. Folk names include folk's gloves, as people used to think fairies used the flowers for gloves. Gorgeous in an early summer border. My favorite flowering ant EVER! Mine got 7 feet tall!
Jenny Foxglove's Gothic Garden - Poker Primrose, a dazzling and different late-spring bloomer! An unusual alternative to grape hyacinth with vivid flower spikes that open from the bottom up. Grows tall in part shade.
