    Is it a rusty foxglove?

    There's digitalis ferruginea and another brown one I don't know the name of...

    2nd pic is def foxglove. Is the first one the same plant? Doesn't look like the leaves of a foxglove image

    D ferruginea has different leaves to a normal foxglove...but I just went out and looked at mine and now I'm not sure I've got that right.

    Mine has a lot of leaves going up the stem. 

    Where are all the experts tonight, leaving us to do IDing on our own...image

    Vebascum? Or something else with a 'v' at the start. Saw something similar in GC today. Veronicastrum. Or maybe a foxglove. (Embarassed smiley)

    I find all the brownish ones difficult to distinguish. Except ferruginea and it's not that.

    It is def. a foxglove, not D,ferruginea as i grow that one. It could be D.parviflora as that is brown, but there are a number of other brown foxgloves available.

    To me it looks larger flowered than either of those two, there's lanata as well

    Leaves look like isoplexis,,, the tender ones.

    It's not a mess, it's a nature reserve.

    Thanks all. Looking at pics of D. lanata I reckon that's a good bet.
