I’d almost forgotten one of my favorite California plants, Echium, or Pride of Madeira. They’re in bloom right now and the blue-violet color amazes me every time I see them. . . .
Did you find the bee?
I once saw a hillside landscaped with nothing but echium and green agave plants. So beautiful.
Echium plants are great for covering large areas, because they get huge. Eight feet tall and three feet wide.
They are native to Madeira and the Canary Islands, and are drought-tolerant.
Hope your week’s going well. Last week we went to Palm Springs for a few days. I’m still editing the photos (I took a lot.) so will try to upload some in my next post.
