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.

Field Notes

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.
