ABSTRACT
The article presents information on foxglove (Digitalis purpurea) of the Figwort family. The 2-5 foot tall foxglove grows naturally along roadsides and in open fields from British Columbia south throughout the western United States. The basal, rosette-like leaves remain green through the winter. Severe poisoning comes from eating the fresh or dried leaves which do not lose their toxicity by cooking. Children have been poisoned by sucking on the flowers and swallowing the seeds.
