The curious shape of the red bugloss (Echium wildpretii) and its bright flowers stand out against the volcanic landscape of Las Cañadas del Teide, the only place in Tenerife where this shrub grows. The red bugloss is endemic to the Island and can grow up to 2 m (6.5 ft) high, making it the highlight of many pictures and post cards, especially in springtime.
