This traditional wild herb is named after the flowers which are said to resemble the head of our native poisonous adder or viper. It's also known as Echium and is from the same family as Borage . It's grown here for its seed oil which has anti-inflammatory properties and is rich in Omega 3, 6 & 9. The bees enjoy the blue flowers and produce a delicious honey with a lingering freshness.
