BEAUTIFUL FOXGLOVE:
POISONOUS LIFE SAVER

Foxglove  is always an early summer
show stopper in the garden.

Its botanical name, digitalis,
is a reminder that,
although every part of this plant
is deadly poisonous,
its refined extract is an important
treatment for congestive heart failure.

This deadly beauty has been
well known in cardiac medicine
for decades.
