The Most Magical Plant of All

If there were an official plant of the fairies, I bet it would be the foxglove.

They are magical plants.  They sow their own seeds. They change colors.

Even their flower shapes morph from year to year.

They seem to know where they belong and what form is needed.

Or is it the fairies that do it?

Every year I anticipate some surprises from my Digitalis purpurea.

This year there were several.    Some pinks got pinker.

Some whites turned half pink.

Some flower tubes got longer and narrower.

Some seeds sneaked into the bunny yard to germinate and had to be moved.  They are poisonous.

Foxgloves are so charming, they must be magic.

  1. Yes they are a very beautiful flower .. One of my favourites and I allow them to seed on my front garden.. And they just seem to know where they want to fit.. And good advice about them being poisonous too…
    Wishing you a Magical weekend 🙂
