Foxglove species looking good in and out of bloom. The elongated leaves are an even glossy mid-green - a tidy rosette before the spike goes up, and neatly arranged around the purple-tinged stems thereafter. The flowers are creamy-white with purplish-brown netting, with a long broad lip. Stems and flowers are woolly-hairy, as suggested by the species name. Deer-resistant.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
