Blue Bird grows from plant!

The Blue Bird of Happiness Posted by Hello
April Fools!

This is a stunning plant! Echium.fastuosum or more commonly called Pride of Madeira.
I had to have it after seeing it grow along the Marina in San Francisco, near Fort Mason.

Two years ago, we planted 4 of them in the front garden. I wanted height, color, drama and no care. In the summer, watering isn't needed. In two years the plants took off and they are wonderful.
