Our great friends, Pat and Bob who live over in Point Richmond (East Bay), sent us some cool pics of their Mr. Happy. What is a Mr Happy? It’s am enormous Echium hybrid that shoot put a crazy high tower of blooms.
Mr Happy - Echium hybrid
Nice composition too complete with Artichoke in the front, and Gold Gate Bridge in the distance.. Sounds like this one will bloom every year too.
You can see a Price of Madeira (Echium candicans) in the background to the right, looks like both Echiums do well on a slope.
