New Batch of Foxgloves

I cannot resist foxgloves when I see them at the nursery. These were some of the early ones that showed up a couple weeks ago at the local nursery and I had to have them to fill in an empty spot in Palm Alley in SJC. Although they are considered a biannual, I always try to make sure that I buy plants that have a flower bud already started. Too many times I have bought them and they have not bloomed for a few years. They are not really that good about blooming profusely the following years for me, but I am happy to treat them like annuals because they are so pretty.

I love Foxgloves too, but haven't had much luck with them reseeding themselves. The ones you picked out are very pretty.
