Echium 'Heronswood White'
Candles of glistening white flowers are held over evergreen architectural grey foliage, bringing a touch of elegance and drama to the dry garden. Exclusive to Diggers, this Mediterranean shrub thrives in our arid summers, tolerating scorching heat, drought and salt spray. A light trim after flowering will maintain this dense silver shrub, providing structure throughout the year. A magnet for bees and butterflies, improving pollination of all your fruiting plants.
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.
