Echium wildpretii ssp. wildpretii (rose flowering)

100cm ø rosette, an unique and spectacular rose flowering form from the Tajinaste Rojo. It is not to be confused with the rose flowering subspecies Echium wildpretii ssp. trichosipohon from the island of La Palma, but it is a rose flowering selection from Echium wildpretii ssp. wildpretii. As the normal red form it is an utmost showy biannual to semiperennial species with a tall cylindrical inflorescence of up to 400cm in height with several thousands of rich pink flowers which are arranged in arching circles. It grows in any pure inorganic soil (e.g. crushed lava) and should be carefully watered, especially in winter. It requires the sunniest position throughout the year and a minimum of some 10°C in winter. It temporarily endures slight freezing down to -7°C if the inner rosette is sheltered from rain. A somewhat delicate plant for the connoisseur, however the low price makes it worth a try! An excellent plant for a frostfree greenhouse or cool wintergarden. USDA Climate Zone 8. IV-VI.
