Also known as Prairie Beardtongue, False Foxglove, Wild Foxglove.

Wild Foxglove (not a true foxglove) is one of the loveliest sights on the spring prairie. It spends most of the year as a small, insignificant rosette, then shoots up 1 to 1 1/2 foot stems a couple of weeks before blooming in the spring. The blooms are white to purple, and each is about 2 to 3 inches long. They will grow in part shade to full sun.
