giant Ruellia


Salvia black and blue:


walking iris(neomarcia gracilis)


Queen's Wreath (Petrea volubilis)


Big Bird of Paradise (Strelizia nicholai) ... does it count under blue?


giant apostles iris (neomarica caerulea)


add yours

All I can say is WOW those are pretty. I love the Queens Wreath!
I don't have any Blue bloomers at the moment. I do have my prennial Morning Glory growing up the post of my porch though and it is starting to take off.

Talking- I love your blues!


Scrumptious GT, totally scrumptious!

I only have two blues that are blooming now - one in the glasshouse
Clerodendrum ugandense -

and these in the garden -
Muscari racemosum

but here are a few that bloom at other times of the year -

Dichorisandra thrysiflora -


Orthosiphon stamineous -

I also have Black & Blue Sage (I sure hope it comes back) -
Salvia guaranitica

practically electric Blue Larkspur in the foreground -
Delphinium consolida

and one of my favorites which should begin blooming before too much longer
Clematis "Countess of Lovelace" -

The only thing blue at my house is me because it won't stop raining.

MR, show a picture of your MG
and zuzu, your blues are lovely, I love the Clero and can't wait for mine to grow up

Scott, , blue weeds sound great, snap a picture. 'Weeds are misplaced flowers' I read on another thread ...
and Kelly, rain is a good thing, so no reason to be blue... dig in your picture collections, I am sure you have a blue flower to add to this thread, if not, we must do a trade

come on peoplez, I KNOW there are more blue flowers around

Awesome pictures! I'm so jealous!

we still have a lot of brown here...barely any color to the grass yet, let alone any blooms.

My hens and chicks are peeking out now, so when we move to green, I can post those

soon, my hyacinths will be along, then I can get some blue.
