Foxglove flower

I planted two beautiful Foxglove plants last year that thrived all season long but did not come back this year. Not one sign of growth where I planted them. Can you explain why?

Were your plants in bloom when you planted them? If so, that's why they didn't return. Foxgloves are biennials meaning they develop foliage one year, come back, and bloom the next. They are not perennials, although they often self-sow so they seem like perennials. Also, they can die off during cold winters, depending on where you live.

I planted a Foxglove a month ago with 2 large blooming stalks. I see by previous answers that it won't come back next year, but as these stalks die, if I cut them out, will it bloom any more this summer?
