Purple hues are flourishing from the sunny beds sporting deep purple eyes in the osteospermum alongside the lavender tones of lantana to ....
...deep purple firespikes lighting up the dappled shade under the oaks.
One of the showiest irises here along the path is 'Regina.' She is a royal purple shade and a very prolific bloomer in the Spring.
Blooms appear on and off throughout the year and the strong strappy foliage grows in ever expanding clumps. These clumps can be divided and more of this easy-care and cold tolerant beauty can be spread to other areas of the garden.
Purple and Iris are practically synonymous. These purple and white walking iris are loving the boggy conditions at the bottom of the hill in the backyard. This past fall these plants were in standing water and they never skipped a beat. Did I mention that this is a shady area along with being wet? There haven't been many plants that have survived the conditions in this spot.
Tomorrow hasn't come for the Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow bush. It will though. Today the flowers are deep purple, yesterday's flowers are now light purple, and tomorrow those flowers will be white. Love this fragrant spring flowering bush. Mine is planted in part shade and so is a bit spindly in growth habit, but the sweet gardenia-like scent is strong and wafts across the garden.
Purple in many different tints and hues is putting on quite a performance in my garden this month. Do you have some favorite purple performers in your garden?
