Echium hybrid
‘Mr. Happy’

Echium hybrid ‘Mr. Happy’ Echium hybrid ‘Mr. Happy’

Now this is what I call a “studly” focal point! Mr. Happy’s um, spire, reaches an impressive 15’ tall & 20” across, with a 3’ bulbous base above large, velvety, silver-green rosettes. He’s an incredibly rare hybrid of Echium wildprettii & E. pininana, good for more than just quickie thrills, he’s covered in an incredible mass of pink blooms with long, sparkly stamens from MAY to SEPTEMBER! Blooming in his 2nd and 3rd year (if cut back), he’s drought tolerant, fast growing AND deer and snail resistant. Easy! Attracts hummers, bees and admiration – I think every front yard needs one! Rich, well drained soil for best, hee-hee … performance!
