Plants I'm Growing--First Blooms: Echium Boissieri (2010)

First blooms of 2010 today on Echium boissieri--one of the lesser-known Echiums. This one has comparatively inconspicuous (for an Echium) pink blossoms on tall spikes that emerge from second-year rosettes of leaves. A bumbleebee favorite around here. This plant bloomed in 2009 on May 18. Thus, a year according to Echium boissieri was 363 days. All the plants in the garden now (about 15 of them) are volunteers from seed.
