Grecian foxglove is a perennial plant that forms a rosette its first year, then bolts and sends up a single flowering stem its second and subsequent years. The flowering stems are unbranched and grow 2- 5 feet tall with many tubular flowers arranged in an elongated cluster. Flowers are creamy white to pale yellow with brownish-purple venation inside. Leaves are simple, alternate, and oblong-shaped with a pointed tip. Flowering stems and calyxes are covered with woolly hairs. Flowering occurs in the summer. The flowers are pollinated primarily by bees, after which seed-containing oval pods are produced. Seed production is prolific and is the only means of reproduction for this species.

Sowing; Sow indoors in late winter to spring or sow directly outdoors in late summer to autumn. Sow indoors in late winter to spring or sow directly outdoors in late summer to autumn.
Sow seeds on the surface of a peaty soil. Do not cover or bury seeds as the seed needs light to germinate, just press seeds lightly into the earth. Keep seed in constant moisture (not wet) they will usually germinate in 2 to 4 weeks at around 20°C (68°F).
Sowing Indoors; Sow seed thinly in trays of compost and place in a cold frame or greenhouse. Once germination occurs keep in cooler conditions. Prick out each seedling as it becomes large enough to handle, transplant into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays to grow on. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10 to 15 days before planting out once all risk of frost has gone. Plant 30cm (12in) apart. Water well to help them establish.
Sowing Direct; Sow directly in a well prepared bed. Sow very thinly in drills 30cm (12in) apart. Firm down. Keep the plants moist and free of weeds. When they are large enough to handle, thin out the seedlings so that they are eventually to 30cm (12in) apart.
Cultivation; The plants establish and grow leaves in the first year, it will send up large spikes, then flower and produce seeds in the second. As a rule, they are hardy plants and can cope with any soil unless it is very wet or very dry. They are fairly disease resistant, although the leaves may suffer slightly from powdery mildew if the summer is hot and humid. If you cut the stalk down before it goes to seed, it will generally rebloom through August and, if you wish, you can reseed from the second showing.
Self-sown seedlings are best transplanted when the leaves are about 10cm long. Make sure the newly moved plants are watered very well to help them establish.
