Also known is Pride of Madeira, (Echium candicans syn. Echium fastuosum) is a stunning architectural plant! The large spires of blue purple flower spikes with delicate pink stamens throughout Spring and Summer provide the perfect highlight above the silvery foliage.
This hardy perennial loves a full sun or part shade position. Drought tolerant frost hardy and grows well in dry climates. Ideal for adding the wow factor to your garden. Echium tends to last only 3-5 years before looking a bit raggedy, but plants will usually drop a few seeds in this timeframe and a new one will replace the older version. Can be grown in a large tub to create a magnificent highlight.
