Digitalis ferruginea, the rusty foxglove,[1][2] is a species of flowering plant in the family Plantaginaceae, native to Hungary, Romania, Turkey and the Caucasus. It is a biennial or short-lived perennial plant growing to 1.2 m (3 ft 11 in), which forms a rosette of oblong dark green leaves and carries spikes of brown, tubular flowers in summer.

The Latin specific epithet ferruginea means “rusty coloured”, referring to the flowers.[3]

As with all species of foxglove, all parts of this plant may cause severe discomfort and vomiting if eaten. Contact with the leaves may also cause an allergic reaction.[4] This plant has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.[5][6]
