Viper's Bugloss Plug Plants Echium vulgare

Also known as blueweed.

Viper's Bugloss grows well on dry sandy soil or chalky or limestone soils, but is adaptable to other soil types including clay or loam.  Its upright bright blue flower spikes can be found in the wild on chalk grassland, sand dunes, cliffs and banks from May to September.  It is wind and salt tolerant.  Its name comes from its spotted stem which is thought to resemble a viper.

One of the RHS Plants for Pollinators, viper's bugloss is a fantastic source of energy rich nectar for bees and other pollinating insects.

Sourced from native seed and grown for us in the UK, our plug plants are an ideal way to boost species in a wildflower meadow or to easily establish plants in your garden or in areas where seed germination can be erratic.

We recommend planting 5 plugs per metre square in groups of at least 3 per species for a naturalistic look.
