Q.

foxglove flowers pointing upwards

Zone East Sussex UK | Foxyglove added on June 15, 2015 | Answered

I have a foxglove growing with the flowers pointing upwards. Why? We have always had lots of foxgloves in the garden which self-seed every year. This year one had grown with the individual flower cups hanging upwards instead of downwards. I wondered why and if this was unusual.

Digitalis purpurea 'Candy Mountain' has beautiful purple flowers that face up, not down!
Very pretty specimen in your garden.
