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’.
