Foxgloves behave like biennials - bloom then fade and die. They usually put
out small plants around the base that may survive the winter.
Why don't you plan on taking the blooms home and letting the plants put
their energies into vegetative babies instead of seed babies - a tall vase
in a corner location, maybe some large fern leaves or evergreen boughs - sounds
I too was captivated by these flowers when I was a child in my
grandmother's cottage garden. I'm thinking about a definition of a "cottage
garden" that would include: ". . .most of the plants must be taller than a
3-year old." That way, small children find the glories of the flowers above them
and framed by the heavens. The foxglove bells are tiny celestial worlds
for a toddler's fantasies.
