Echium vulgare, Vipers Bugloss, also called blue weed - which is a little confusing as its main purpose used to be as a red dye! It's one of the best bee plants, and should be part of any garden designed to attract wildlife. It's in the same family as both borage ("common bugloss") and alkanet ("dyer's bugloss"), but not closely related. The name viper's bugloss came from its use in the past as a treatment for snake bites.


Fresh white flowers are most closely associated with purity and innocence. The delicate white blossoms represent honesty, purity, and perfection. White flowers in a garden communicate that wonderful combination of elegance and innocence.
