    I've been googling around and both these plants seem to be called Echium vulgare. One is a short annual and the other is a tall biennial. What do we deduce from that? image

    Mine seed around like mad but the best ones are in the sun. It grows on sand dunes in the open so hot and dry should suit it

     

    Some of us love the challenge of a 'what is it?' Wendy, we'll drivel on for hours sometimes with suggestions and discussions
