|My garden contains only purple and white flowers. I have a purple and a white cyclamen, lavendar and white ageratum. This year I would like to add cutting flowers. Which species would you suggest for all purple and white bouquets? The only two I could think of were Gladiolus and Zinnias. By the way, in the center of my garden I have a Purple Gazing Ball.|
|Here are a few suggestions:|
Perennials: irises, purple coneflowers, delphinium, daisy fleabane 'Azure Fairy', salvia, scabiosa, phlox.
Annuals: statice, asters, cosmos, baby's breath, salvia 'Oxford Blue', heliotrope, forget-me-not 'Mystery Rose', lisianthus, verbena, snapdragon.
All these flowers come in shades of purple and/or white, but you may need to hunt them down. Many are commonly sold in mixes of colors, rather than single colors.
