If you like surprises, you may want to add some foxglove to your gardens.
Not only do they self-seed to change location and change color, they also change shape.
If you have added numerous varieties to your garden the surprises will occur every spring.
As the lovely plants bloom and set seed, their DNA mixes to produces new combinations.
Every spring is a color crap shoot. This spring I have some new shapes.
I also have a new white with spots that are almost invisible.
This is one of the many reasons I love foxglove, besides those spots.

I didn’t know that! Thanks for the tip 💐
A perennial garden supplier once told me that long ago frontier girls used to make dolls out of Foxgloves using the “bell” as a skirt!
