Anecdotal: Digitalis is trickster medicine associated with foxes and spirits. It is commonly found growing in rabbit holes, thought to be entries into other worlds. The spots on the flowers are believed created by a spirit to act as warning that Digitalis is very dangerous. Although bees love it no other animals are known to touch it. It is grown in gardens for protection. A black dye rendered from Digitalis is painted on floors for the same purpose. Digitalis is an agent of exorcism as well as reconciliatory medicine for healing broken hearts and wounded feelings. It is a magnificent garden specimen and exceedingly poisonous. Great caution must be taken when included in a garden collection.
