Family Boraginaceae
Originating from Madeira

A bushy, vigorous biennial or short-lived perennial sub-shrub with rosettes of hairy, grey-green leaves and spikes of blue flowers in spring. Magnificent as a foliage plant, it’s explosive when in flower, Pride of Madeira is extremely effective planted amongst spiky palms, yuccas and agaves but equally suited to a more traditional, sunny border.
Grow in moderately fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. Protect with fleece in winter.

Mature height and spread after 2 – 3 years 1.5m x 1.5m
