SOLVED: Digitalis?

Western, PA(Zone 6a)

I have had this Digitalis for some time from a seed exchange. It will grow anywhere, and seems to be perennial. Almost considered a weed. Anyone know the name?

Looks like Digitalis to me. Baa could know the species.

I'd say digitalis lutea - although this looks taller than mine are

Oh poo ... yellow foxgloves!

First question ... how tall is it?

Second question ... are the flowers all around the stem?

Thrid question ... any hairs on the leaves?

I have a strong feeling this is D micrantha but it could be one of 2 or three species.

2 1/2 feet tall.
Flowers on one side of the stem.
No hair on the leaves.

Thanks Golddog

That settles it, Poppysue was right it is D. lutea!

I wonder if you have a cultivated form?

After some research, I only received Digitalis lanata from this seed exchange, no D. lutea. Might this be D. lanata?

No, definitely not D lanata which is a 'brown' foxglove with a pute white large lip.

Seed from exchanges as well as from seed companies is wrongly marked at times, for sure.

Very true!
