We've all seen a plastic nursery pot sit too long on the ground and root right into the soil. This my friend is that phenomenon taken to the next level. Not only is the trunk of this plant about the size of that 4" pot look at the massive root!
And you know what – it's blooming – Echium don't care! (said with the same inflection as Honey Badger Don't Care, of course).
With this crazy plant feature (spotted in the garden of a friend) I'm joining up with Anna at Flutter & Hum, who hosts our Wednesday Vignettes. All material © 2009-2016 by Loree Bohl for danger garden. Unauthorized reproduction prohibited and just plain rude.
