5 Perfect Purple Plants For Your Garden
FOR HEIGHT IN YOUR LANDSCAPE: This variety is a perfect backdrop to the smaller annuals in a flower bed. Angelonia ‘Angelface Dark Violet’ will reach a height of 18 to 24 inches with deep, purple blooms that keep coming all summer. It’s also a promising choice for a cut flower with its ability to look lovely in a clear vase on the kitchen counter.
FOR HANGING BASKETS: Calibrachoa ‘Superbells Grape Punch’ offers richly colored blooms that boast dark centers surrounded by a strong purple. Its trailing habit makes it suitable for the hanging baskets on a front porch.
FOR PATIO CONTAINERS: Petunia ‘Supertunia Royal Velvet’ has been a Proven Winners top-seller for many years. Gardeners depend on this all-season performer for its deep, purple blooms that remind many of velvet. It is an ideal choice for a mixed container, or on its own in one’s favorite pot or basket.
FOR WINDOW BOXES: With its luscious, lilac-colored blooms that will cascade down from window boxes, Verbena ‘Superbena Royale Chambray’ is a vigorous grower that is very heat-resistant. It can be relied on to perform throughout summer.
FOR THE FRONT OF YOUR LANDSCAPE: A newer selection, Monarda ‘Pardon My Purple’ is a petite perennial that offers 2½- to 3-inch blooms in the heat of the summer. This fragrant perennial is easy to grow, hardy to Zone 4a, reaches 10 to 12 inches in height and attracts butterflies.
