BLUE FLOWERS ARE A STAND OUT



You can not have too much blue in the garden in my opinion. I love blue. I always like the various blue salvias and, of course, the blue Wave petunias. But one little plant that is just a stand out is the "blue daze" evolvulus. This little flower reminds me so much of the Canterbury bells we had all over the place when I was a child. It thrives in hot summers like we have here on the Coast. It is in the morning glory family and is almost the same beautiuful blue as the "heavenly blue" morning glory.I have one on an earlier post. Since it is only 12 inches high,,it will look good in the front of your bed with let's say, ,the gold zinnias..Pictue this: The icy light blue flowers with olive colored leaves in front of the gold zinnias,,,oh wait..You don't have to picture it...that is what is in the picture. Now isn't that dramatic?

Hello Eve, thank you for visiting my blog. I love blue in the garden too, and goes especially well when you're by the sea (as I am!).One day I'll try and grow some himalayan blue poppies...

In my opinion you can never have too much blue and yellow in a garden. They go together like pink and purple (another must) One of my favortie blues is cornflower (or mountain bluet or pernennial bachelor's button -- whatever you want to call it)
Thank you visiting my newest blog, An Herbal Bedfellow. I appreciate your comment.

Eve, thanks for visiting my blog. I'm afraid that I am not much of a gardener. As a matter of fact, I accidentally mowed down some of my flowers yesterday. Your flowers are fantastic!

Both of your blogs look very interestsing and I shall visit you more often.

I have 3 Blue Daze plants and love them! Just wish the blooms would stay open all day long!

I just this year found Blue Haze, not surprising given my limited gardening of the past few years. :) I love it!

You and me both. They look so lovely at any time of the day. x
