The Foxglove is a pinkish-purple, odorless flower shaped like the fingers of a glove. Tall with erect spikes, the seeds, stems, petals and leaves of the plant are poisonous. Yet, it’s also the source of digitalis, used in medicine to increase the blood flow through the body.
Poison or cure?
Joya’s Foxglove plays with this duality. A soft green explosion, Foxglove is both tender and fierce, its salt meadow grass, cedar and oak supported by honeyed florals and a juicy burst of bittersweet blood orange.
