Plants with blue flowers or foliage are not as common as those with say, yellow or designing a blue colored garden can be a bit of a challenge, using blue plants in a small monochromatic garden lends itself to creating the illusion of depth and an aura of mystery. Perfect for a sheltered garden that needs some height, but lacks the space required for trees with spreading canopies.

Also suitable for large containers.
