[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Never has pharmacology looked so pretty. Foxglove, or digitalis purpurea, is manufactured into digoxin, a medication which regulates heart rate for conditions such as atrial fibrillation, flutter and congestive heart failure. This ornamental garden plant, therefore is toxic when digested.
