  • Agalinis aspera is a non-poisonous plant of the genus Agalinis, habitating in the dry prairies. It can grow to be about eight to twenty-four inches tall. When the flowers bloom, the colors vary between purple and pink. The tall foxglove is native to some parts of the United States and Canada. According to USDA Plants, the places where the tall foxglove can be found are, "Arkansas, Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Wisconsin, and Manitoba". It cannot be found in other locations is because they do not have the right habitats. The foxglove likes to bloom in the low wet meadows or along hillsides and the bloom period for the tall foxglove is from June to September. It is in the family Orobanchaceae, but previously was a member of the Scrophulariaceae family It was realigned following molecular phylogeny data from the chloroplast genome. Dr. Virginia Freire and Dr. Emmet J. Judziewicz mentioned that agalinis is Latin for "remarkable flax" and aspera is also Latin for " 'rough' or 'harsh' from coarse nature of leave,".
