Echium pininana AGM in 3 litre pot, aprox height 35cm+
When you see it you will want one. Echiums are a lighthouse for attracting Bees and other beneficial pollinators.
This is a very short lived perennial that will self seed prolifically just before it dies. Flowers usually year 3, sometimes year 2 in late Spring. Anyone who grows these instantly becomes an addict, with a towering flower spike that can potentially stretch for 3 feet on an already tall plant is deffinately the draw. Clearly one of the most impressive flowers that we can grow in the South West. Hardy to -5
Good drainage is essential, sloping if possible. Either loam or poor soil in full sun. Can reach upto 8-12 feet when fully grown
Shelf Life: 3 Years
