WHOLESALE ECHIUM NURSERIES
Echium plants are standout landscaping plants, attractive foliage through the year and brilliant flower in season. Bold flowers and attractive foliage make these great feature plants. They add size and height to the garden border and come a number of varieties and flower colours.
Excellent plants for attracting bees to the garden, and easy to maintain.
Grown mainly for the tall purple to blue flower spikes that appear above the foliage in spring to summer. Foliage is mostly a blue green and is attractive through the year. Some species such as Echium simplex have white flowers
Maintenance is easy, simply remove spent flower heads to tidy up and prune lightly to maintain a more compact shape. Echiums do not require much water once established, and do require good drainage.
Smaller growing cultivars can be grown in containers, plants make a good feature in the garden border, with taller species being suited to the rear of the garden border if needed.
A number of species and cultivars are offered by wholesalers and they do suit use as feature plants as well as for mass planting in commercial and broader landscaping projects.
- Echium candicans (syn Echium fastuosum) – Also known as ‘The Pride of Madeira’, lower growing with purple flowers and perhaps the most widely grown of all.
- Echium wildpretii – Very large flowers with spikes to over 5m in height, red in colour and a standout in the garden.
- Echium plantagineum – A very different form with smaller terminal flowers not widely offered for sale by wholesalers.
