The Q&A Archives: Echium Source

Question: I would like to find seed for Echium candicans, Pride of Maderia, to grow here maybe as an annual. Or even find where I could purchase the plant. Do you know where it is available?

Answer: Echium candicans, Pride of Maderia, is a member of the Borage family and is considered a problem plant because of its invasiveness. The sale of the seeds is prohibited in some parts of the nation, making the seeds or plants difficult to find. You might try contacting Seeds of Change, P. O. Box 15700, Santa Fe, NM 87506-5700 as a source for seeds. Their phone number is (505) 438-8080.
