Even beyond the beach, Pride of Madeira may work for you. With its oversize vivid blue blooms in spring and summer, Pride of Madeira is hard to miss near the beach, but it's also pretty easy to grow a bit inland. It is a big, tall shrub with gray, felty leaves. Use it for bold looks in the background or in a semiwild setting. Warning: It can spread by seeds in favorable situations.Common name: Pride of MadeiraBotanical name: Echium fastuosum USDA zones: 9 to 11 Water requirement: Light Light requirement: Full sun Mature size: 6 feet tall or more and up to 10 feet wideGrowing tips: Prune back the branch tips for bushier growth.
