This is possibly the most lusted-after plant in gardens every May and June, and is a fabulous cross made between the superb Echium wildpretii with its four foot, fat red spike and the giant blue Echium pininana. The result is a 15 inch wide, tapering tower of delicate pink flowers which are like a lighthouse between 3-4.5m tall, attracting bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects. Although most plants will be pink, the odd variant colour will always appear, but all are very desirable.
Grow Echium ‘Pink Fountain’ in moist but well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. Be careful when handling this biennial, half hardy perennial, as the sap can irritate the skin and all parts of the plant are toxic if eaten.
