My Blue Heaven

IMG_6533Some gardeners are devoted to getting the color blue in their gardens. Blue doesn’t appear much in flowers naturally, and many times plants that are considered blue, look more purplish — at least to me. Here’s a ‘Heavenly Blue’ morning glory that I planted earlier this summer. This is its first bloom (I should have started it indoors) and it has an eye-catching sky-blue color that really stands out in the garden.

  1. Hi Mary !

    I want to recommend a blue flower that is native to the Midwest, though not to Minnesota, which is easily grown from seed and is a tall perennial. It’s Blue Sage, Salvia azurea, and you can get seeds from Prairie Moon Nursery in Winona. I don’t think I currently have any pix on my blog, but I will try to get some there soon. Also, Great Blue Lobelia, Lobelia siphilitica, is beautiful and blooming now.
