A Traditional Blue Spring Garden


The objective in designing a traditional blue garden is to create a charming, romantic impression.

  • To achieve this, you could combine various kinds of blue-flowering bulbous plants in the border or in romantic containers and baskets made of rattan, zinc or traditional earthenware.

  • For fragrance, choose from several blue hyacinth varieties; among the more exceptional blue-flowering bulbous plants are Anemone coronaria ‘Mr. Fokker’ which prefers the shelter provided by perennials in order to withstand the cold better. Blooming the latest (end of May) is Allium caeruleum, an azure-blue ornamental onion that’s at its prettiest among the silver-gray foliage of lavender.
