Echium 'Heronswood Pink'
Fat, mid-pink candles of flowers are produced over a compact, grey-green evergreen shrub. Growing and flowering much like the familiar blue Pride of Madeira, this unique pink variety is useful in cool colour schemes with pastel combinations, even in the hottest spot in the garden. Ideal for attracting bees to increase pollination of all your fruiting plants. Minimal care for maximum impact - simply plant in an open, sunny position and prune off spikes after flowering to maintain shape.
Full sun, suits sandy or impoverished soil but adaptable to a range of sites provided soil is free-draining . Drought, heat and coastal tolerant once established, protect young plants from frost. Do not over water, dislikes humidity. Remove spent flower-heads to maintain a compact shape, but do not prune too hard as plants don't regenerate from old wood.
