Purple Annuals

October 9th, 2018

When it comes to flower colors, purple and lime green are my favorites. This spring, I purchased a lovely purple alyssum and this other lovely purple flower (I’m blanking on the name of it right now).




Both of these beauties have been blooming profusely since mid-June, well worth the few dollars each I paid for them. The only thing I’m not super pleased with is that believe neither produce any kind of nectar or pollen for the pollinators. Typically alyssum does, but it seems this variety may not. While I do enjoy them, I may look for something next summer that will not only look beautiful, but also produce food for the local pollinators.

Have you tried any new annuals this year? Have you discovered any new favorites?
