Flowers for the Future

As I consider paint colors I am hoping to get inspiration from the garden.  Although I "thought" I knew what colors I want to paint the house I am feeling unsure about the warm tones that my current scheme employs.  So I am looking to Purple Flowers to help me pick a perfect purple for the Fairy House. 

 

Some of my big winners for their heartiness include:
  • Delphinium
  • Salvia
  • Coral Bells
  • Hyacinths
  • Lavender
  • Crocus
  • Hellebore, Wedding Party Bridesmaid
  • Columbine, Early Bird Purple & White

 

Flowers aren't always the answer.  I am also considering some purple, grey and black plants as well for around the base of the cottage.

  • Colocasia ‘Black Magic'
  • Heuchera, Obsidian (Shade)
  • Heuchera, Forever Purple
  • Pulmonaria, Twinkle Toes
  • Athyrium, Ghost 
  • Hellebore, Wedding Party Dark and Handsome
  • Lamium, Beacon Silver - Silvery ground cover for dry shade.

Purple Perennial Inspiration

  • Allium. 
  • Catmint. 
  • May Night Sage (Salvia)
  • Clematis. 
  • Verbena.
  • Iris
  • Phlox
  • Aster
  • Monkshood
  • ... Maybe some Hosta around the base of the house?
