The foxglove is a very Popular gardener's choice, yet can be very poisonous. Most cases are from the medicinal overdose (The plant is used in heart medicine.) The flower can be white, pink, and even orange. The seeds are tiny, but when planted, seeds germinate very fast. It takes 2 years until the plant blooms, so either be patient, or get a full grown foxglove plant.
