These are medium-sized plug plants of Echium pininana 'BLUE STEEPLE' sometimes referred to as the Tower of Jewels. This is a half hardy perennial and will need protection from frost during the winter months. It can grow to a height of 4.5 metres. It requires a position in a sheltered spot or alternatively could be grown in a large container and kept in a frost-free greenhouse through the winter. This incredible plant initially produces a palm tree-like rosette, with large, thick, hairy leaves on a strong woody stem. This unusual plant is scientifically a 'triennial', and either 12 or 24 months after sowing, the centre, holding thousands of flowers, shoots upwards, sometimes to 15-20 feet! Bees love this giant, which, if you are lucky, will gently self-seed but never becomes a nuisance, as the seedlings are so visible and easy to pull up (if you have the heart)! Most plants will be deep blue although the odd variant colour may always appear. These medium-sized plug plants are ready to be potted up into larger pots and grown on and planted out from mid-May once the risk of frost has passed. POSTAGE IS INCLUDED ON THIS ITEM WITHIN THE UNITED KINGDOM
