Garden blues can be pale and luminous, dark and glowing. In their infinite tints and shades, they create emotions, excitement and draw the eye. Blues in the distance, such as banks of blue flowers, compel motion and push out the garden boundaries, giving the illusion of space and distance.

  • In this contemporary blue garden, minimalism is the key. Large quantities of one type of plant provides the perfect effect in this space with its clean, simple lines and contours.
