Viper's Bugloss

Echium vulgare

On roadsides and waste places on gravelly and chalky soils the Viper’s Bugloss will be found. Abundant in some parts of southern England, becoming rarer in the north. A very stately plant, and prettiest when only one or two flowers are open on each cyme.

Flowering from June to August.
