OTHER:

Rusty Foxglove is a European native. The flowers are golden-bronze with reddish, rusty-brown veins & spots on the interior of the petals for an overall stunning effect. I’m not the only one that’s noticed though – it is an RHS Award of Garden Merit winner! The plants are deer resistant & have narrow, shiny, evergreen, lance-shaped leaves. They like more sun than "common" foxgloves so can be planted in a wider variety of locations. The beautiful spikes of bell shaped flowers attract bees, butterflies, & HUMMINGBIRDS!
