Yes, Provided the pot doesn't freeze solid, foxgloves are bone hardy.

 I would put the pots against a house wall for a bit of protection.

I dont think its an amaryllis or a clivia or an orchid. Other than that I have no idea.


 Interesting flower though.

Store it in old fizzy pop bottles. It will keep for next year. Store in a cool dark place , to help prevent fermentation.

It depends on the size of the plugs.   Anything that has roots filling a 7cm pot should be large enough to grow well in the spring, and then flower. The larger the plant is now, the bigger the flower spike  next year.

I had some tiny plugs (seedlings)of foxglove dalmation peach delivered last march, I potted them into 7cm pots and thenplanted them out. They started to flower July , were deadheaded and are still flowering.
