The spikes can be a foot long. It forms a low rosette of dark green, ovate-lanceshaped, finely toothed leaves. Each flower is intricately marked with brown on the inside. Originating in mountainous woodland and stony habitats from Europe to western Asia, yellow foxglove is tolerant of dry shade but flourishes with moisture.
