The first one I picked is blue, maybe because you don't see a lot of blue flowers in the garden. A lot of blue flowers have a tint of purple or a touch of pink in them but still add the blue color. Blue flowers blend well with flowers of many colors including violet, mauve, deep pink, orange, yellow, white, gold or plants with silver-green foliage. I will list some annuals and perennials in the blue family and a little about them. Annuals Aster (Wonder of Staffa) flowers from early summer to fall with 2 inch lavender- blue flowers with gold cen- ters. Morning Glory (Heavenly Blue) for a blue vine with 4 inch blooms Ageratum (Blue Danube) good for borders, grows 6 inches tall-bloom all summer. Chrysanthemum (Blue Knoll) flowers from September-November- 12 inches tall Gladiolus (Blue Sky) a rich violet-blue Lobelia (Fountain Blue) low plants for edging or in containers Lobelia (Compact Royal Jewels) rich blue in "color with white eyes Petunias - there are dif- ferent varieties such as Blue Storm or Blue Cascade that come in shades of blue Salvia (Blue Victoria) violet-blue 16-18 inches tall Statice (Blue) good as a fresh or dried flower Perennials Aconitum or Monkshood (Bressingham Spire) dark violet-blue hooded flowers on 24-36 inch spikes Stoke s Aster blooms 3-4 incheS J feet tall Bellflower Campanula bell-shaped inches tall Brunnera has sky blue flowers Clematis (Will( 6 inch blooms or (Koni rich 4-5 purple- Delphiniums or Dark Blue) summer 24-28 Dianthus Blue) 1/2-1 dianthus Geranium Blue) has 1 1/2- ers -15-18 in.
