Echium

Echium russicum full sun

The rich sanguine hue of Echium’s bold columns is tempered slightly by a dusting of tiny whitish hairs and below their abundant display, lance-shaped leaves decorate the flowering stems. By nature a biennial, when planted in well drained soils this eastern European native is proving reliably perennial. Show it off amidst other meadow plants such as Deschampsia, Stipa gigantea and Salvia ‘Swan Lake’.

Blooms July–August.

Size: 2-1/2'–3' 0" high x 15"–18" wide; hardy to zone 7.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.

Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

You may wish to include one or more of these easily grown herbaceous perennials, ornamental grasses, shrubs or trees that wield plenty of October flair.
