Unless of course you are one of these guys. Sun has finally arrived on Ireland’s shores, people are smiling, plants look well and the desire to garden has started.Especially with this collection of blue coloured plants all in flower today.
Pulmonaria ‘Blue Ensign’ a useful evergreen plant which works well in shady areas with its compact clusters of large, violet-blue flowers in spring.
Viola ‘Columbine’ perfumes the air with fragrant white flowers flushed and streaked with violet-blue.
Viola ‘Janet’ with its dark blue, almost purple flowers with cream centre and yellow eye and a lovely scent to go with it.
The huge heart-shaped leaves of Brunnera macrophylla ‘Variegata’ are edged in creamy white for a dramatic contrast in the shade garden. Tiny, baby blue flowers dance above the foliage.
Muscari ‘Dark Eyes’ An outstanding Muscari with fragrant, white edged, deep blue flowers.
Primula denticulata with its erect stems are topped by masses of tiny flowers formed into a ball – giving the appearance of a drumstick.hence the name drumstick primula.
Such a diverse range of blues, but more than able to bring a cheer on this day.
