Echium gentianoides

Echium gentianoides Tajinaste

We are thrilled to offer this extremely rare and endangered Echium from the island of La Palma in the Canary Islands! True cerulean blue flowers held in loose pyramidal spikes bloom the first year and are a sight to behold in the Spring garden! Emerging from pink buds, the cup-shaped flowers are well displayed above rough, blue-grey, linear foliage. EASY and impressive, it blooms Spring thru Fall, totally unlike any other Echium we know! Sturdy, branching, 4’ x 4’ form. Highly recommended! Drought, heat and deer resistant! Needs awesome drainage for ultimate happiness.  Side dress with an 1” of compost once a year.
