his Echium has been growing in the trunk of the Tree Fern since seeding a few years ago. I left it to continue to grow and now it has reached flowering size. After flowering it will die and the Tree fern can continue as usual. The flower spike can reach six feet in my friends garden. I wonder how tall it will get when it does flower. When it does it will look as the Tree fern is in flower with a spectacular blue flowered tall spike. The roots of the Echium is growing downwards, in the trunk, towards the Tree fern's pot.
