FOTD for 20th December.

My FOTD entry. Not entirely sure what these plants are, but there’s a lot of them on around in the cultivated areas of Fuerteventura.

** edited to add in that the name of the plant is Echium. Thanks to Love Will Bring Us Together who painstakingly researched it for me. **

    Found it! – it’s an Echium; Echium decaisnei to be exact, a native of the Canary islands!

    As far as i can tell it does not have a ‘common name’ but a good nursery might know if they have any cultivars under a brand name?

    There are a number of species, some with huge tall ‘spires’ of beautiful blue, pink or white flowers like these! 🙂
