Digitalis grandiflora is one of the few truly perennial foxgloves. A continental species that is attractive and reliable yet remains an infrequently seen specimen in gardens. Extremely hardy, this is one of the toughest and best performers of all the foxgloves. 
The plants form low rosettes of dark green leaves, bearing upright stalks of beautiful creamy-yellow bells through the summer. Each large flower is intricately marked with brown on the inside.
