This is one of those plants that has the wow factor, a fantastic showy plant that has lance shaped silvery leaves that are covered in tiny hairs. The leaves form a big rosette up to 1m in diameter. In the second or more usually third year it will produce a flower spike up to 3m tall. This is made up of thousands of tiny ruby red funnel shaped flowers that is a sight to behold. These flowers are loved by insects and will be covered in bees all day long. Ideally plant somewhere sheltered and it's best over wintered in a frost free environment. This is one of the most sort after Echiums, it comes from the volcanic slopes of the Canary Islands. Height 2-3m spread 1m
