Echium candicans 'Heronswood Blue'
Member $11.95
Originally selected from a chance seedling at Heronswood, this prized, dry-tolerant echium is covered with tall candle-like spires of cool sky-blue flowers soaring above its grey-green whorls of evergreen foliage. A spectacular spring flowering highlight to add drama and sculpture to the dry garden or perennial border. 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.
