Echiums Flowering Majestically in the Dry Garden 2012


My echium simplex have begun flowering in the dry garden and look spectacular at the moment. Echium Wildpretti not far away eaither as is Echium Cobalt Towers.

The Dry Garden in October 2012, early morning shot. Echium Simplex towering at 2 metres high.

The Dry Climate Garden gets no more than threee waterings throughout the year, usually January, February and March. Less if it rains more than 25mm in any of those months. The entire garden is heavily mulched with cereal straw I obtain from a local farmer at very little cost as it is spoilt hay or straw from previous years and no longer saleable.
