Echium candicans

Common Name: Pride of Madeira

Description: Pride of Madeira is a stunning perennial plant, easily recognisable in Spring and Summer each year by its huge blue-purple flower spires. It is a drought and frost tolerant plant. Echium tends to last only 3-5 years before looking a bit raggedy, but plants will usually drop a few seeds in this time frame and a new one will replace the older version. 

Mature Size: 2m (h) x 2m (w)

Position: Full sun to part shade
