Echium amoenum 'Red Feathers'
Excellent addition to a rock garden to attract pollinators! Small wildflower with pinky red spikes and a deep sage green bristly foliage; you can tell it's related to borage. So can the bees. Blooms will often extend past 4 weeks; keep deadheaded. Low water needs once established, full sun and well-drained soil will keep it happy. Looks great with other spire-forming plants such as digitalis and Verbascum 'Southern Charm'. From the Caucasus Mountains.
