Rusty foxglove is native to southeastern Europe, Turkey and Lebanon and is documented to the 16th century in the early British herbals of Parkinson and Gerard. While there is no direct evidence that Thomas Jefferson cultivated this species, it was available on an 1810 broadsheet of Philadelphia nurseryman Bernard McMahon as well as in his book, The American Gardener’s Calendar, 1806, under the common name “Iron-coloured Fox-glove.” The plant often begins to bloom the second season after it becomes well-established in the garden, where it will also re-seed if allowed. Deer typically avoid Digitalis species. zone4,zone5,zone6,zone7,zone8
