Penstemon digitalis, a Foxglove native to the eastern and western United States and Canada turns out to be quite adept at spreading itself. It’s a lovely, though slightly more delicate version of Foxglove, with striking redding foliage. I noticed it’s spreading from the one I planted last year, to four or five new plants this spring. Foxgloves tend to die off quickly for me, so it’s a welcome addition. An Americanized but appropriate plant for either a witch’s garden, or fairy garden.
