Garden Purples

This time of year there is a lot of purple to be found in our garden.  Focal colors change throughout the spring and summer.  We get a fair amount of white and pink blooms in early spring, then we transition into purples, and then hotter colors start to appear by early summer.  Right now there’s a tapestry of purple, with everything from pastel to blueish purples appearing somewhere.

Miss Kim lilac plant. We have three, and they are in glorious full bloom right now. It smells heavenly.

Siberian Iris

Just a few of the Allium bulbs we now have blooming around the yard.

Bachelor’s Button or Cornflower. This is from a dividing we did of the original plant, which my husband and I got at the first plant sale we ever attended together.

Perennial geranium.

Flax

Columbine

Wild or perennial lupine.

Missing are pics of the regular purple iris and of the Spiderwort plant that are both adding to the purple display right now.

Even the weeds are purple, like this annoying creeping groundcover stuff that I can’t seem to get rid of. At least it’s pretty when it blooms!
