Tenerife - funny plant near the volcano
Echium wildpretii - grows near the volcano El Teide. The red flowers form a pyramid up to 3 m in height. These plants are adapted to the tough environmental conditions on the volcano such as high altitude (up to 3700 m), intense sunlight, extreme temperature variations, and lack of moisture. Flowering takes place in the late spring or early summer, in the months of May and June
