I absolutely love plants in the Scrophulaiaceae, (Snapdragon Family), and this tall annual is no exception. South African Foxglove has graced my garden with its presence for several years and never fails to provide interest and color. It starts blooming in late spring and continues until frost, with huge 4″ tubular flowers of lavender-purple. If you’re lucky, you’ll have a few seedlings every year after planting it in your garden.
