Description:
The Pride of Madeira is a well-known plant of Madeira where it occurs along the coast and in Laurisilva of origin. The plant is biennial or perennial: in the first year it forms a rosette which is followed during the second year by beautiful blue flower clusters of up to 45 cm. The plant can be kept at a minimum temperature of 5 degrees Celsius. Provide a sunny spot. 

In among others Australia and New Zealand it has become an invasive species, so it is not recommended to let the plant grow in warm countries where it can stand outside during winter too.
