Perennial Garden in Blue – Short

BLUE is the color of relaxation, royalty, the sky, the water. In a perennial garden, Blue will reduce the heat of the reds and yellows and add cool tones. Blue perennials give depth to a white perennial garden. And, my favorite, blue perennials with silver foliage plants. BLUE perennials make a statement that can’t be done with a hot red or yellow but can provide the contrast to provide visual impact.
A favorite garden in blue was a sidewalk edged with blue lobelia, white allysum and light blue lobelia. It was only 4 inches tall and 12 inches wide but was so beautiful, I saw it from a block away and stood and stared.
These perennials only grow to 2 feet /60.96. The “Perennial Gardens in Blue-Medium to Tall” includes shorter varieties of tall blue perennials.

As an experienced landscaper (I am a Master Gardener and have 2 University degrees in Fine Art), I design gardens and research perennials that can provide visual impact to satisfy my clients from year to year. You can do it, too, with my help.
I have developed this application to provide my expertise for plant choices, whether for size, color or fragrance. Over 20 years of research, planting, monitoring and risk taking with perennials became my obsession.
During those years, I became quite frustrated at nurseries when the clerks had less knowledge than I had so I wanted to implement a method of having the information “IN MY HAND” to get what I needed. This is the information and now it can go with anyone to find plants for a “Perennial Garden in Blue”.

Plants were chosen for their aesthetic qualities as well as their individual strengths and placed in this format:

Name (botanical and common)
Zone (temperature requirements)
Bloom time (length, duration of bloom or time that flowers are visible)
Height (inches and centimeters)
Bloom size (I find this very important and rarely noted on nursery tags)
Planting Space (amount of space in the garden)
Soil (requirements for best growth)
Sun (how much sun)
Bloom duration (yes, the length of blooming is important to any garden)
Habit (how the plant acts in it’s own space)
Use (bouquets, fragrance, border plants, middle ground or background, foliage)
Recommended (plants that would stand out)
Companion plants (complimentary plants for color, size or season)
Pronunciation guide (how to say the name)
Deadhead (how to or whether to snip off spent blooms)
Cutback (techniques for caring for the plant)
Propagation method (how to get the plant to reproduce)
Pest (what I know about bugs)
Disease (what I know about afflictions)
Ecology notes (special interest about the plant, TOXICITY)
Gardener’s tip (something I think may be useful)
Without clawing through hundreds of plant books (I have already done that) or reading online text for hours (hundreds of hours) you can choose perennial plants.
This format should make it easy to take straight to any nursery (on foot or online) and ask, show or look for the correct perennial plant(s). 20 years of shopping, researching, and growing perennials are formatted for gardeners and landscapers to ease the frustration of “not knowing”.
Explore the varieties and colors. Smell the fragrance. Get the right size. And end the drama.
Are you ready to plant? Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Peace, Pollyann
