Echium fastuosum, Echium candicans

Pride of Madeira
Family: Boraginaceae
Origin: Madeira
Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterBlue/lavender/purple flowersIrritatingAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeSeaside, salt tolerant plant

It's an evergreen perennial that flowers its heart out from spring to summer. It grows rapidly to form a multi-branched bush with grey-green leaves. They're characterised by large and impressive blue flowers. Large 12" intense blue flowers stand high above the foliage to make a brilliant garden display. The flowers intrigue up close, and the bush is fantastic from afar, growing to about 7 ft tall and spreading to 3 ft. A great selection for a rockery garden and a dry bank. Plant in a sunny and well-drained spot, any reasonable soil will do. It's coastal tolerant, and can handle dry conditions and a very light frost or two. After flowering, remove the spent flower heads and prune lightly. This Echium is easily propagated by seeds.

Edgeworthia chrysantha, Giant Leaf Paper Plant

Edgeworthia chrysantha

Giant Leaf Paper Plant
Family: Thymelaeaceae
Origin: China
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterYellow/orange flowersFragrantDeciduousAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Edgeworthia chrysantha is a heavily-wooded deciduous shrub. The genus Edgeworthia comprises three very similar species from China and Japan. It is named after Michael Pakenham Edgeworth (1812-81), a part-time botanist, plant collector and employee of the East India Company. Apparently E. papyrifera has white flowers, not the yellow of E. chrysantha, though some botanists regard them variations of one species. The foliage is attractive, especially when young, but this is a plant grown for its flowers. They are bright yellow aging to creamy white, tubular and about 1cm long. Individually they are nothing much, but they are densely packed in 8cm diameter globose heads. The are very fragrant and open until late winter from buds that have been obvious from late autumn. The flowers are followed by dry, purplish-green berries known technically as drupes. A moist, well-drained, humus-enriched soil is best.
