In Your Garden Design
Blue is a calming colour and creates a sense of space and endless horizons, so plant at the back of the garden if you want it to appear larger than it is. It also works well as a foil to other plants. Pair with our Regal Whites collection and pink perennials for a soothing combination, or go bold with our hot and spicy range.
Did You Know?
Blue is one of the three primary colours, yet only 10% of all plant species are naturally blue. Bees (who can't see red) in particular love them, but blue and violet flowering plants are great for all pollinating insects because they typically produce the most nectar.
Blue pigment has long been considered a signifier of importance, associated for centuries with the best, and coolest, chariot racing team in the Greek-speaking Roman Empire. In Medieval times, when the dye was made from costly lapis lazuli, blue was used to symbolise greater wealth than gold in iconography depicting the clothes of Mary Theotokos.
