Foxglove, native to most parts of Europe, has been naturalized in parts of North America. Foxglove features “glove finger” like showy flowers that spiral around a thick stem. This plant has medical and industrial use significance. It is the original source of the heart medicine digoxin (digitalis) and as a source of a steroid component used as a molecular probe to detect DNA or RNA. Medical uses aside, the leaves, flowers and seeds are poisonous to human if ingested.
