Foxglove plants prefer average to sandy, well-draining soil.


This plant grows best in full sun (>6+ hours sun/day) or part sun (4-6 hours sun). Foxglove can also benefit from afternoon shade, especially in areas with high summer temperatures.


Foxglove has average water needs, needing occasional watering during the hot season after establishment.


Lightly fertilize your foxglove plants in the spring.


Leave spent foliage in place over winter to help protect the foxglove's crown. Wait until early spring to cut it back to promote new growth for the season.

Maintenance & Pruning:

Cutting and creating cut flower bouquets helps to encourage a second flush of blooms. Plus, it looks beautiful! Deadhead or pinch flowers once a week to tidy up your perennial bed.
