    Salvia patens, deep blue velvety blooms.

    Cornflowers in bloom at the moment. They go especially well with the bright yellow dandelionsimage

    My blues are hyacinths, anemone blanda, forget-me-nots, brunnera and pulmonarias in spring.  I have one with a rich deep blue flower and silvery leaves but don't know its name.  Then geraniums Johnson's Blue and Rozanne, Clematis Perle d'Azur, echinops ritro, eryngiums, plus some comfrey like plants I was given and can't name.  I used to have 3 different agapanthus ranging from light to mid to deep blue but they were killed off by a hard winter.

    Last year I sowed anchusa and am now waiting to see them flower.

  • Geranium Roseanne is a great favourite here... arriving a little late, it then flowers its socks off for the rest of the year. Some geraniums have another go after a haircut, Roseanne just keeps going. I have several under a grouping of Queen Elizabeth roses. First year, can't wait.

    ( someone once wrote that it was the "most boring" plant, in that it plodded on, flowering. The RHS named it the plant of the century... you pays your money, etc.)
