Full Description: Succulent species Echium candicans (syn. Echium fastuosum ), also commonly known as (Pride of Madeira) is a species of flowering plant in the family Boraginaceae, native to the island of Madeira. It is a large herbaceous Perennial subshrub, growing to 1.52.5 m (4 ft 11 in8 ft 2 in).

(Pride of Madeira) is found in Madeira's far east. In the first year after germination the plant produces a broad rosette of leaves. In the second and subsequent years more or less woody flowering stalks are produced clothed in rough leaves. The flower head is a large spike 15" up to 3' foot tall and covered with vibrant blue flowers having red stamens. It is much visited by bees and butterflies for its nectar.

Echium candicans is widely cultivated in the horticulture trade and available throughout the world as an ornamental plant for traditional and drought tolerant water conserving gardens. It is particularly suitable for coastal planting, and is a popular ornamental in coastal Southern California. With a minimum temperature requirement of 57 C (4145 F), in frost-prone areas it needs some winter protection. It has even gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.

Offered as; 2+ rooted plants 12" minimum tall to all locations. Available for mail order only within the U.S. or for pick-up at the nursery as established 5 gallon sized plant(s).

Very easy to grow, drought tolerant and a spectacular flower display most of the year except Nov., Dec. & January depending on your weather in your location.
