Scrophulariaceae: a perennial to 60cm. Found woodlands, hedgerows and uncultivated fields on siliceous soils. The flowers are 2cm across, pale cream-yellow and tubular, on slender, upright stalks, blooming from June-July. The leaves are glossy lanceolate, finely serrated, rosettes, and evergreen. Native to Western and Western Central Europe, from Belgium and Spain east to Austria and Southern Italy. Found naturalised in Britain.
Yellow foxglove is little used in herbal medicine but is in fact a less toxic alternative to the Purple and Woolly Foxgloves (D. purpurea and D. lanata) which are widely used in the treatment of heart complaints. The leaves have cardiac, strongly diuretic, stimulant and tonic properties. This remedy should be used with caution and only under the supervision of a qualified practitioner, excessive doses can prove fatal.
Surface sow early spring in a cold frame. The seed usually germinates in 2 - 4 weeks at 20°C. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and plant them out in the summer. Succeeds in semi-shade on ordinary garden soil, especially if it is rich in organic matter. It can also succeed in dry soils once established.
