Used to work in horticulture (Wakehurst Place). Now in Leeds, it's my passion! Contending with Yorkshire weather and a huge oak tree!

Echium pininana syn. Echium pinnifolium

These were self-seeded from the year before last...there's a second monster, out of shot to the left. Both white...I was hoping for at least one to be blue-flowered, but still love 'em.
