Description

White Foxglove, a showy biennial bearing spires of white tubular flowers in late spring and early summer, was grown by Williamsburg's John Custis in 1735.  Philadelphia nurseryman Bernard McMahon listed both the pink and white forms in his 1804 broadsheet.  Deer-resistant due to toxicity.

Sow seeds indoors in summer and transplant the seedlings to individual pots before moving to the garden in early fall.  The plants will establish rosettes of leaves before heavy frost and bloom late the next spring.  Approximately 400 seeds per packet.
