@thehardygardener it’s probably about 12-14’ tall,bottom half is a bit ugly but love the flowers & the constant sound of bees! 🐝
That's impressive, tall daisy's might hide the straggly bits

Impressive Leon, can just about see the top..
@solly1961 thanks Mark,it survived the strong winds this time,lost a few smaller flowering stems last time. It must be about 12ft or more now.....just hoping to find some seedlings later! 🌱
12ft, wow, even more impressed especially surving the last few days.
@solly1961 I’ve got it tied in a couple of places lower down,but the main stem is pretty strong. 🤞🏻

Yay flowers on my echium! Only took two years but worth the wait. #echium 💜
That's quick! Nice one 👍

My echium reaching for the Sky & branching out! Can’t wait for it to flower,in its third year & now over 10’ tall. #echium 😍
Well it’s grown tall & tatty,about 6ft,but no flowers!! #echium 😕🤔
Hi Leon, I grew one a few years ago. It took 4 years to flower and spent three winters wrapped in fleece, it was very stressful! I said it wouldn't grow them again but have found a self seeded one this summer so here I go again!
@euphorbia Hi Jennifer,thanks for letting me know,wow four years! I thought it would flower in its second year,oh well I still look forward to it flowering even if it gets quite tatty! 😊👍🏻
Leaves are a bit rough but recovering well after a wood pigeon sat on the top! #echium ❤️
No respect 😂
@jaynehynesburton exactly! 😂🤣🙄
The promise of what’s to come! #echium 💙😍
Doesn’t look much now but at least it’s in the ground at last! Looking forward to seeing the tall spire of flowers one day! #echium #anticipation 💚
2020 I reckon, but you'll have to protect it from severe frosts 👍
@jeatacake yes I reckoned on a couple of years,hoping I can get it through frosts,not too bad here usually. 👍🏻
I bought one a couple of years ago from Detling Garden show took a whole year to about 7 feet tall it’s meant to self seed like mad I never got another one..
Another exciting present today,doesn’t look much,but I’ve always wanted to grow one of these,with their spectacular spire of flowers! #echium #anticipation #excited ❤️😍👍🏻
