Purple Foxglove

digitalis purpurea


Foxglove is the largest digitalis, it is protected. It is highly toxic because it contains digitoxin, a substance used in medicine to slow the pericardial.


We find it in edge of coniferous wood on land granitic (silicious) at an altitude between 400 and 1400 meters.
