This article is third in a series about plant botany. My kitchen window overlooks my gardens and recently I noticed a foxglove (digitalis purpura) with a tall bud spike. I noticed that day-to-day it moved in a rather extreme bending action.

Digging out my botany books, I was reminded that plants can move in a variety of ways. While we normally think of plants as “rooted” to a spot, they are sneaky and do move around!
