These beautiful, wild plants are striking, especially when they flourish in the Coastal foothills and mountains of Northern California. They grow in moist clearings and even among trees in the forests. The drug Digitalis, which moderates heart rate is derived from the Foxglove plant. Flowers range in color from purple and red to pink and white. In California, the blooms extend from May to September.
