Lavender with purple flowers

Do you like purple flowers? Purple is a color that attracts a lot of attention. It is widely used especially for its ability to transmit a feeling of peace and harmony, two things that cannot be missing in every garden. Even where there are only cacti, a few purple plants can give the place that touch that helps you to be relaxed.

Would you like to have plants with purple flowers? Fortunately, there are many that are easy to get and care for, such as the well-known lavender essence , which is a shrub that is also used in aromatherapy due to the sweet smell of its leaves. But this is not the only plant that I am going to suggest ...

Petunia

Petunia with violet flowers

Petunias are extraordinarily hardy and one of the most intensely colored purple flowers. It is one of the first to bloom in spring. As it does not grow much - it stays around 30-35cm in height - it is perfect to have in a pot. And if winter is too cold, with temperatures below 5ºC, you can easily choose to acquire an envelope of seeds or new specimens in spring, as it is very economical. To give you an idea, both the envelopes and the plants already in bloom can cost 1 euro. Interesting, don't you think?

Buganvilla

Buganvilla

La Buganvilla It is a deciduous or perennial climbing plant depending on the climate that grows in the warm temperate regions of the world. Although what we call flowers are actually bracts (the flower itself is that little white that comes out of the center), I think it could not be missing from this list, since the bracts they sprout in spring and their flowering period does not end until autumn.

Rose

Purple Rose

The rose bushes are all wonderful, but having a purple flower in the garden or in a pot is quite an experience. There are several that produce flowers of this color, but we especially recommend the 'Purple Dream' and 'Rhapsody'The latter, in addition to being precious, gives off a very pleasant aroma. Like all these plants, they have to be in semi-shade or in full sun and watered very often.

Myosotis sylvatica

Myosotis sylvatica

La myosotis or forget-me-not is a rhizomatous perennial herb that reaches a height of between 20 and 50cm. Flowers, although they are very small - barely 1cm or 1,5cm - and simple composed of five petals, are produced in such quantity that sometimes it can give the impression that they are trying to hide the leaves; when? During spring. It is mainly grown as a potted plant, since it is so beautiful that you want to have it indoors in a very bright room or as part of a colorful flowerbed in the garden.
