Let me just tell you how much autocorrect wants to change the spelling of the title!

I’m refusing it, though, for it is no mistake. It turns out that Echium candicans is the name of a plant I’ve long loved here on the coast yet never knew the name of. One day this week, on someone else’s post, it popped up in social media, and I don’t think I’ve ever been so thrilled. It seems that the plants – so Dr. Seussian, so otherworldly – go by the shorthand Echium or Pride of Madeira as well.

Though I’m planning a social media break this summer, it’s nice to know that it’s got its place in my world. Echium, indeed!
