Echium

September 11th, 2018

Back in 2009 I visited Longwood Gardens and spotted this echium growing in a container.

I’ve been wanting to grow one ever since, though sourcing the seeds has been tough. There’s a blue variety that I really like Echium pininana ‘Blue Steeple’, which I found seeds for but haven’t purchased yet (maybe now?).

Have you ever seen these in person? What’s a crazy plant you’ve seen that you’ve always wanted to grow?

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
