Purple Plants

“There is a reason why purple is the color of royals. It’s a powerful hue. From sparkling lavender to sultry eggplant this color is pure luxury. In the garden you can use the various shades of purple to add dimension to a flower border or container combination. Pale purples reflect light and will jump forward while darks absorb light and recede. If you have a flat composition adding lilac or perhaps a deep violet will create a feeling of undulation.” ~ P.
