Digitalis viridiflora is a species of flowering plant commonly called green foxglove in family Plantaginaceae. It is a perennial species with greenish-yellow flowers produced on stems that grow 60 to 80cm tall. It is native to the Balkans.[1] It is found growing in woodlands and heaths.[2]


Digitalis viridiflora is a herbaceous, perennial foxglove, growing up to 80cm tall. It has upright flowering stems with many greenish-yellow flowers that have some brownish-red spotting and mottling of the throats. The foliage is covered with pubescent hairs (trichomes).[3] It has 56 chromosomes.[4]

It is native to Albania, Bulgaria, Greece, Thrace (Turkey), and areas within the region of the former Yugoslavia.[5]

Green foxglove is a perennial grown in gardens for its distinctive greenish-yellow flower color and it being adaptable to partial shade; it has a dense habit and the flowering stems make long-lasting cut flowers.[6] It is propagated by seed and by division of plants in early spring.
