The Latin name is Digitalis meaning digit finger. Inside the bloom is dotted like leopard prints. Many folklores surround how Foxglove received its name, the most quaint - long ago fairies gave foxes this flower to place over their paws, in order to hunt prey without making a sound! Foxglove is very toxic despite it’s beautiful bell shape and colour. The prescription drug Digoxin is made from chemicals in Foxglove.
