A great border plant with pannicles of deep red flowers from June to August. Plants form a rosette of hairy leaves in the first year and lots of flowers in the second, growing to a height of up to 1m. Some plants will live on to be short-lived perennials. A fantastic border plant that attracts pollinators and self-seeds freely.
Echium russicum prefers sun and fertile well drained soil. Good for Mediterranean gardens.
Pack of 15 seeds. Sow in spring/summer for flowering the next year. Easy to grow. Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.
Parts of the plant are a skin irritant.
