RE: purple spires, or, 'blue spikey flowers are why I garden' (Follow-Up #32)

May I suggest
Blue Imperial Giant larkspur. I've purchased this from seed, and it is the perfect plant for winter sowing.

Also phlomis cashmeriana is unusual looking and has lavender colored blooms. I'm going to link to a photo below, but it appears more pink in the photo. It's halfway down the page.

I also love Rocky Mtn penstemon, Wasatch Penstemon, and Pikes Peak Purple. Oh and Rondo mix, though it comes in pink purple and blue. I guess you'd have to pick it out while it's in bloom at the nursery to get just the blue/purple shades. All three in this photo are Rondo mix.

I see I need to add some veronica and the salvia leucantha by those photos above. I think that adenophora is so pretty too, but I wonder if it could take this climate.

Also I sent you an email offline David3511. I'm dying to know where to find the white epilobium in your photo.


Here is a link that might be useful: Cashmere sage
