A very elegant, and truly perennial foxglove, with glossy green, narrow-leaved foliage. The upright flower stalks often grow in curvy lines, and are lined with many creamy flowers. The flowers are smaller than those of many other foxgloves, but their simple elegance makes up for lack of size. Only when you get up close do you notice they are very hairy inside.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
