E. pininana is a rosette-forming biennial or short-lived perennial with lance-shaped, roughly silver-hairy leaves to 7cm long. Each rosette produces a flower panicle up to 4m long of funnel-shaped blue flowers with large bracts in summer. It needs full sun in a sheltered position and protection from winter frosts. In its native habitat in La Palma it is now endangered through habitat loss.
