Digitalis and birds. South Africa

digitalis03October 8, 2003


I'm interesting to know if in some of your gardens in South Africa (or in other places) sunbirds are usually visitors of your Digitalis (foxglove) flowers for nectar in yours garden

I know that hummingbirds visit these flowers when the plant is introduced in North American...and maybe the other specialist nectar feeding birds in Africa (Nectariinidae) could be the same

thank you
