Produces small lemon-yellow flowers, often with brown spotted throats. Cut back stems after first blooming to encourage additional flowering. Digitalis lutea is an evergreen perennial that is short-lived, so it should be frequently divided. Self sows and will naturalize if some seed stems are allowed to mature. Digitalis lutea prefers part to full shade and is best in evenly moist, rich, organic soil. It tolerates some sun if soil is kept moist. Once established, does well in dry shade. CAUTION: All parts of this plant are toxic & may be fatal if ingested. Sow seeds directly on ground once soil is warm or start indoors about 4 weeks before last frost. Do not cover; seeds need light to germinate. Seeds will usually germinate in 2 to 4 weeks at 68 degrees.
