Scientific Name(s): Digitalis purpurea L.; Digitalis lanata Ehrh; Family: Scrophulariaceae (figworts)
Common Name(s): Foxglove , digitalis , purple foxglove , throatwort , fairy finger , fairy cap , lady's thimble , scotch mercury , lion's mouth , witch's bells , dead man's bells , woolly foxglove
All parts of the plant are toxic. The incidence of digitalis toxicity in therapeutic use has been estimated to range from 5% to 25%. Ingestion of extremely small amounts of the plant may be fatal to humans, especially children, and to animals. Toxicity is cumulative.
All parts of the plant are toxic. Animal toxicity occurs during grazing. Children have become ill by sucking the flowers or ingesting seeds or parts of the leaves. Deaths have been reported among people who drank tea made from digitalis mistakenly identified as comfrey, although the bitter taste often deters ingestion, and its emetic properties can induce vomiting, thereby limiting systemic absorption. Digitalis poisoning is also associated with intentional ingestion with suicidal intent.
