LoreFirst-century Greek surgeon Dioscorides is said to have carried foxgloves with him when he traveled with Nero's army. It was often grown in cottage gardens in the Middle Ages. In the 17th century, herbalists recommended using the flowers to make a salve for skin afflictions. Today foxgloves are a source of digitalin, used in a drug used to treat heart problems. However, flowers and leaves are toxic if ingested. Not fit for human or animal consumption.
