Week 31: The blues are blooming

Lupine, iris, and clematis in a champagne flute

 

If you go to a local garden store in these heady days of spring you’re likely to encounter pretty much all the colors of the rainbow and then some. But blue flowers, true blue flowers are the least common.  Blue flowers tend more to purple in general which is why I grow these lovelies which give me blooms closer to true blue.  They are in truth a little more purple than the photo but they are blue enough for me in the plant world of rarities.
