Digitalis obscura


Digitalis obscura, commonly called willow-leaved foxglove, is native to Spain. It is a woody-based, shrubby perennial foxglove that typically grows to 1-2’ (less frequently to 3’) tall. It features large, tubular, funnel-shaped, pendulous, rusty dark orange to greenish-yellow flowers (to 1.5” long) with interior red veining and spotting. Flowers are borne in terminal racemes atop leafy flower stalks clad with narrow, linear, glabrous, gray-green, willow-like foliage. Individual flowers resemble the snipped-off fingers of a glove. Blooms late spring to early summer.
