It’s hard not to love Foxglove (Digitalis), one of my favorite early summer flowers. Did you know that an extract from a species of this lovely plant has been used as a poison for hundreds of years? It’s true. But for folks with certain heart conditions, especially atrial fibrillation, that’s very good news. A derivative of digitalis, known as Digoxin, has been successfully treating heart conditions for decades. —P.Crane
