Play with Purples

From pale lavenders to potent royals, purples are chameleons of the garden. Some are at the vibrant red-purple end of the spectrum and can stand up to other bold colors. These look fantastic combined with yellow or lime.  At the other end of the spectrum are the paler, soothing blue-purple ones which add depth to silvers or whites without dominating them. Purples can be fun to play with and it’s pretty hard to get it wrong.  Mix them into bed and borders or make a real statement by combining several plants in gradient tones, from light to dark, for an ombre effect.
