Lost in Green

A pink foxglove flower sits amidst a sea of green leaves and umbellifer flowers.

Both wild and cultivated foxgloves have seeded all around the garden – flowering in all the plots …….. gifts from the breeze. They look wonderful – so architectural, strong, and healthy. They seem to be the right plant in the right place on the right kind of soil (like the parsnip flowers 🙂 ).

Wild foxgloves can be found amongst hedgerows around here, and can be differentiated from the cultivated foxgloves by the position of the flowers. If they are situated on one side of the flower stem, they are wild and if they sit all around the stem, they are the cultivated type.
