The Dapple Designs Expert Says:

Pride of Madeira or Echium candicans is medium shrub that originates from the island of Madeira which is off the North West Coast of Africa. It is a very drought hardy plant that requires little attention. Its does very well in Australia, so well that it can be considered a weed in some parts, especially in Victoria. But it has the most amazing display of blue flower spikes that forms a really captivating display from early spring.
