Echiums @ My Garden Treasures
They attract the honey eaters . We have a constant supply of birdlife visiting our garden. The Red Wattle Honey Eaters and New Holland Honey Eaters spend their day feasting on the nectar of the flowers, dipping their long beaks for the bounty. The tall blue flowers sway to and fro as the birds come and go.
Bees also love this plant, and are seen buzzing around gathering pollen and nectar. Bees love blue flowers. Moths are attracted to the flowers at night. My granddaughter came with me outside one evening. We had torches and she watched, fascinated, as the moths flitted around the flowers.
Echium Plants For Sale
Last year, one of my plants was so happy that it spread its seeds far and wide and hundreds of small echium plants sprouted.
Many plants have gone to new homes and I have plenty more for sale.
