I. Wawer, in NMR Spectroscopy in Pharmaceutical Analysis, Lanatoside C. Digitalis lanata, the plant harvested in Brazil is the industrial source of digoxin and lanatoside C, used in the treatment of congestive heart ltural production is the only economically feasible process to obtain these cardenolides and thus, investigations on methods of isolation and analysis are. Classification General structure. The general structure of a cardiac glycoside consists of a steroid molecule attached to a sugar and an R group. The steroid nucleus consists of four fused rings to which other functional groups such as methyl, hydroxyl, and aldehyde groups can be attached to influence the overall molecule's biological activity. Cardiac glycosides also vary in the groups ATC code: C01A. Digitalis purpurea is a BIENNIAL growing to m (4ft) by m (2ft in) at a medium rate. It is hardy to zone (UK) 5 and is not frost tender. It is in flower from June to September, and the seeds ripen from August to October. The species is hermaphrodite (has both male and female organs) and is pollinated by Bees. It is noted for attracting wildlife. The colors blend together to create an overall mocha/cream palette, giving this beauty its delicious name. Hoodlike flowers form around the stiff, strong stems. In our trials, these plants are very productive, yielding 10–15 stems per plant. Can be fall or spring-planted. NOTE: Flowering occurs in late spring in the second season of growth.

Chemical constituents: The inter-relationship o f digitalis glycosides found in Digitalis lanata. Note By: Heart failure is a condition in which the lower chambers of t he heart (ventricles) are. The name Digitalis comes from the Latin word digitus, which means finger, because of its finger-like flowers. Lanata means woolly, referring to its racemes. This plant has life-saving properties. Because of D. lanata's higher potency of digoxin, it beat D. purpurea out of its medicinal job in the pharmaceutical industry. As beautiful as this. English chemist Sydney Smith obtained digoxin from woolly foxglove (Digitalis lanata) in The digitalis drugs come in many forms, differing in their chemical structure. As a group, they are classified as cardiac inotropes. Cardiac, of course, refers to the heart. An inotrope is a substance that has a direct effect on muscle contraction.
