A PASSION FOR  PURPLE FLOWERS

From pale periwinkle to jewel tones. Purple adds drama and mystery. I add yellow, pink, and white flowers to add contrast and lighten the palette. To create great focal points with intense color, I combine shades of orange or gold in front of a swath of purple blooms. My favorite color combination is combining a punch of chartreuse with deep purple- talk about eye catching! Below are some of my favorite purple blooms:

Hydrangea – Available May through October. A favorite for Bridal Bouquets; Can vary in color from light sky blue, periwinkle blue, to lavendar tones. Very fragile in summer heat.

Hyacinth – Available November thru April in pink, white ,  lavendar, and purple. A popular cjoice for wedding  bouquets.

Freezia – Popular spring flower with a light fragrance. Is said to be the flower to symbolize “peace and calm”. Popular colors are lavender, pink, yellow, and white.
