There are other species / cultivars of Echium if that looks close but not quite.

Hi phil67ii, Welcome!

I wonder if that lovely plant might be a variety of Spike Speedwell (Veronica spicata) ?

LOL, nope ... not Veronica. PlantingOaks has the correct ID, definitely Echium pininana!

Now that is one cool looking plant!!
Tree Echium? Cool!
I can see growing that because of the weirdness factor alone. I tip my hat to you.

I am so excited because I recently found out there's a variety that may be hardy where I live! I guess that's why I have ecchium on the brain.
