Description :

Columns of blood-red blooms

Echium russicum is native to Eastern Europe from the Balkans to Russia. Its habitat is the light understory of pine forests and rocky meadows. It can be a biennial or ephemeral perennial and during its first growing year produces a wide rosette of silky, grey-green leaves and in the second a bouquet of spectacular blood-red floral spikes, an unusual colour for the Echium genus.

In the garden you can plant Echium russicum in a meadow-themed area together with light grasses such as (Stipa, Festuca, Eragrostis) in full sun, in a poor, mainly sandy soil.

Its vagabond habit of reseeding naturally will add a touch of originality to a bed: dark red stripes dotted here and there, against the silvery foliage of the artemisia (A. 'Valerie Finnis'), balls of santolina or as a shape and colour contrast with “fresh butter” flowering varieties such as Anthemis or the sturdy Echinacea 'Evening Glow'
