Wild Foxglove or African Foxglove
The Wild Foxglove is a tall annual herb with erect stems. Leaves are opposite, are 3-lobed and toothed and flowers are pale pink or white in colour, elongate and trumpet-shaped.
The Foxglove occurs among rocks or along roadsides and in South Africa can be found in Mpumalanga and Limpopo provinces and in the Kruger National Park.
The Wild Foxglove is a dramatic flower, especially when concentrated on roadsides. Although beautiful it must be taken into account that all parts of this plant are poisonous to humans and animals alike.
