Known as viper’s bugloss, blueweed, Snake Flower and Blue Devil. It is a Biennial plant that blooms mid to late summer. The pollen is blue but the filaments of the stamens remain red, contrasting against the blue flowers. It flowers between May/June and September. Also likes Chalky soil or dry tall grassland. Part of the borage family, honey bees love this plant, with plentiful nectar in the conical flower heads (bell-shaped flowers).

Echium Vulgare is known to attract a variety of pollinators, including bees, butterflies, and other beneficial insects, making it a valuable addition to gardens and natural habitats. Additionally, viper’s bugloss has been used in traditional herbal medicine for its purported anti-inflammatory and diuretic properties, although caution should be exercised as some parts of the plant may be toxic if ingested in large quantities.
