Common name viper's bugloss
Family boraginaceae
Life cycle annual
Flowers various colors, white-lavender-blue (summer)
Size 2-3'

Marvellous larger annual. It is a noxious weed (also known as "Paterson's curse") in Australia, but doesn't have that status here. We grew it on the back yard island hill last year. I hope it reseeds!

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
