RHS perfect for pollinators
Perfect for pollinators

Viper’s Bugloss -echium vulgare – grows very well on dry sandy soils or those containing chalk or limestone. However it is very adaptable to other soil types including clays and loams. Viper’s Bugloss makes a colourful and striking addition to a sunny garden flower border, where plants will be alive with butterflies and bees throughout summer. It can also attract the Painted Lady as a breeding butterfly which will lay its’ eggs on the plant. Vipers Bugloss produces spikes of brilliant blue, showy flowers in June, July and August. It looks best growing with other native plants that flower in mid summer such as Oxeye daisies, Meadow Cranesbills, Knapweeds, Scabious, and Mallows.

How to grow Viper’s Bugloss Seeds
Viper’s Bugloss seeds should be sown in autumn, outside where they are to flower, and covered lightly with soil.


RHS Perfect for Pollinators.
The RHS Perfect for Pollinators mark is only given to plants that support pollinating insects in gardens. Bees, butterflies, moths, hoverflies and many others visit flowers to feed on nectar and pollen; while doing so they transfer pollen and increase seed set and fruit development.
