Echium plantagineum

Echium plantagineum Purple Viper's bugloss


I found a colony of pink Echiums among the blues and purples. It grows from 30~60cms tall and flowers from February to July. It is native to southern Europe, north Africa and SW Asia.It is highly toxic to grazing livestock, but contains nutrients that are used in cosmetic and skin care products.
