plant of the week

Digitalis grandifloraYellow Foxglove (Digitalis grandiflora) - Everyone knows the common foxglove, which needs lots of irrigation to grow in Colorado. It blooms and then dies. But most wild foxglove species are long-lived perennials that are very drought tolerant and good for dry shade. The wild yellow foxglove is one of the best of these, brightening up shady corners with its moonlight glow.
