Echium candicans 'Select Pink' (Pink Pride of Madeira) - Long, gray-green leaves are held at the ends of the branches on this evergreen shrub that grows to 6+ feet tall by about as wide. This form seems more upright than 'Select Blue' and our seedling plants. Large stalks of small medium pink flowers bloom in the spring and into the summer. A good plant for seaside gardens. Plant in full sun. It is drought tolerant in mild coastal gardens. Hardy to about 25 degrees F. This selection was given to us by Santa Barbara horticulturist Bruce Van Dyke. We discontinued growing this plant in 2006 and replaced it with 'San Bruno Pink' which has better form. For more information on the species please see our listing for called Echium candicansThe information on this page is based on our research that has been conducted on this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in the nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we have observed it. We also have incorporated comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Echium candicans 'Select Pink'.
