The tag must have slipped off when I purchased it. I like to keep a binder with the plant info so I know when to do what to each plant. Since I have no clue what this is..I need a little help so I can look up how to care for it.

Thanks in advance






This is a new "fairy garden" for the girls...just thought I'd share

I don't see the resemblance to a shamrock. I attempted to find, but could not. Could you provide more details - such as, where you bought it, annual vs perennial, etc. Basically, anything you can recall. I am thinking some sort of aster, but really, I think I may have made that up.

BTW, your fairy garden is wonderful. Should be a hoot for the kiddos.

Im pretty sure its a type of Larkspur possibly a hybrid though.

here's a blue Larkspur, flower head shape and foliage are similar.



There's about 50 subspecies and they do vary greatly so it could be hard to track down.
Many are poisonous as well if ingested.

But the Foxglove or Digitalis as haven pointed out is highly poisonous and should'nt be ingested or even handled as the toxins in the sap can penetrate the skin.Digitalis poisoning causes heart failure.

I know about all the plants I have planted..except that one..it was one I hadn't seen before and thought I would mix in more whites. I am very aware of the toxicity of the foxglove. My girls are both old enough to know better not to touch it and they LOVE alerting everyone that comes into our backyard
The fairy garden is only for looks...NO TOUCHY...TOUCHY! I am trying to teach them how to identify plants and how to care for each..what to touch and what not too. We are putting in a herb garden for them so they can get all touchy feely and not have to worry about any of them being poisonous.

The plant in question--
Purchased at Menards
I am in zone 6
it is a perennial
grows 12" tall ( I always check at the store so I can quickly design the height factor in my head)
that's all I can remember...

whomever said larkspur--might have it right on...it looks just like it--only white.

I will do some searching on the suggestions and I thank you guys for your time!


so far in the fairy garden I have : (some not pictured..because the garden extends to next fence rows)

Tiny Ghost Asiatic Lilies
Shasta Daisies
Delphinium
Spotted Dead Nettle
Forget-me-nots
2 Foxglove
Columbines
2 Speedwell
Catmint
Lemon Thyme
Pink Beardtongue
Greek Oregano
Yellow Tickseed
Peach Tea roses
Pink Tea roses

The herbs in this garden is for green fill and won't be used. We have other gardens we use for our herbs/other edibles.
