Photo - Chinese Foxglove (Rehmannia elata)

This unusual perennial is a great cut flower
as well as a good hummingbird plant.
Chinese Foxglove will go dormant in the winter
and start blooming around April.
This plant likes direct morning sun and some
shade in the middle on the day.
The flower stalks usually reaches 4 feet tall,
although I have one stalk that is climbing
through a tree and has reached 8 feet tall.
Just like regular Foxglove, all parts of this plant
are poisonous.
