Description

(White tree Echium)
Family Boraginaceae
Originating from Canary Islands

Forms an enormous rosette of huge, hairy leaves in it’s first year which in itself adds great architectural impact to a border. In it’s second year the gargantuan flower spike, for which it is famed, thrusts skywards up to 5m and is covered in tiny white flowers (and bees). It’s a biennial so won’t survive after flowering but it will self seed prolifically.
Grow in well-drained soil in full sun. Will survive outdoors in mild winters in a sheltered location. Protect with fleece.

Mature height and spread after 2 years 3m x 1m
