Echium candicans is native to the island of Madeira off the coast of Africa, which coincidentally has a climate very much similar to San Diego’s. Not surprisingly, these shrubs thrive here. Bees love them.
I’m just a guy with nearly an acre of dirt, a nice little mid-century ranch house and a near-perfect climate. But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
