Medium_20190108_171622_-_copy Just wondering if you can tell me what this plant is?

Answer: Hi Karen,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Your plant is a type of Echium, these plants have really amazing blue-to-purple spikes of flowers.

The foliage on your plants is sparse, so it would benefit from a feed. We recommend ‘Yates Thrive Natural Roses & Flowers Organic Based Pelletised Plant Food’ for healthy growth and good flowering.

Joyful gardening!

Kind regards,

Yates Horticulturist
