Singing the Blues in the Garden
Blue is such a wonderful color. It is not often found in flowers, although there are some. Many of the flowers that are called blue have more of a purple tinge to them. But you can add blue to your garden with carefully chosen garden accents, seating and other items.
Whether it be seating, a planter, or a well placed watering can, these lovely blue accents make the surrounding areas such a pleasant place to gaze upon. And don’t forget the blue flowers when you can find them!
A true blue perennial salvia flower. Flowering in my test Garden right now.
This clematis makes a wonderful vine to grow on a mail box. Not strictly but but fairly close in color.
This minimalist rectangular blue planter is the perfect way to showcase succulents. They are available from Amazon.
My hydrangea bush in full bloom. Can you believe this was pink last year? Hydrangeas are a stunner in summer gardens.
Be sure to check out my guide to propagating hydrangeas. It features a tutorial demonstrating hydrangea cuttings, tip rooting, air layering and division of hydrangea plants.
This Whimsical Garden Greeter adds a fanciful touch to the entry of this garden shed. Shared by Barb of Our Fairfield Home and Garden.
Some of the earliest of my blue flowers are these blue hyacinths. Their fragrance is so lovely and the blooms are lush and gorgeous.
