Many species of Echium grow as small or medium-sized herbs. In the highlands of Tenerife, Echium wildpretii forms large rosettes and huge inflorescences two metres or more in height. Similar growth forms of other usually herbaceous species can be found in other subtropical and tropical high-mountain areas worldwide.
