Regular price$14.00
Tax included.
perfect for pollinators

Echium pininana Snow Tower is a lovely biennial  that produces  leaves in the first year and then flowers in the second year with the most amazing white towers that can get upwards of 3m tall each holding literally 1000’s of pure white flowers with iridescent blue anthers.

The spent flower spikes  can be left on the plant right into winter, as they add a striking structural presence  in the winter garden. Snow Tower likes full sun  and well drained soil. This plant will tolerate dry conditions, but only mild frosts, so a sheltered sunny position is best.  If you have a look at our first photo, you will see a bee coming in to land! 

If you ever wanted a plant to attract masses of bees then this is it - Echium pininana is an absolute bee buffet!  Will self sow in warmer climates.
