What Is the Meaning of the Purple Color?
The purple color embodies discretion, depth, and even pain. That seventh color of the rainbow is a door open to infinity. It calms anxiety and sharpens your focus. They are offered as a bouquet if you want to celebrate discreet and restful love.
Purple represents dreams, magic, and mysticism. As the color of the seventh “chakra,” it represents the perfect balance between two opposite dimensions: heaven and earth, life and death. The meaning of the lavender-colored rose is ideal to offer to a new lover.
Lavender and the Heliotrope Characteristics
Lavender is a flowering tuft that blooms during summer in many terminal purple-blue spikes. It is characteristic of the province where it fields, lining up rows of purple flowers, and perfuming the environment.
You can plant lavender both in the garden and in a pot to put on your terrace. It has a strong odor that can repel insects and its purple color can embellish your environment. Lavandin is less fragrant than true lavender, which has no equivalent, despite the existence of the lavender butterfly and that of the Canaries.
The Peruvian heliotrope or Saint Fiacre grass is an annual whose compact forms are particularly appreciated with their small flowers grouped in large inflorescences of dark purple color or pale mauve. They attract butterflies and give off a very sweet, vanilla scent, which can even be heady: a great asset for a mass of annual flowers near the house.
Few Facts about Wisteria and Lilac
Wisteria lane was the pretty name that carried the peaceful street where the desperate housewives seemed to lead a serene and happy life in the television series … The purple, mauve, daisy-clustered flowers of this climbing woody climber are simply magnificent to dress a wall, an arbor, a porch or any other guardrail. The Chinese wisteria with purple flowers is the most prized, the most vigorous and the most perfumed variation.
The lilac is a spring-flowering shrub that perfumes, with the subtle scent of its pretty clusters of purple. Other colors exist like white and pink but the most characteristic is this mauve so particular that it has given its name to the color. Integrated into a flowering hedge, the lilac brings the perfume and the purple necessary and complementary touch.
What You Must Know about Lupine and Bellflower
Indispensable in a group of perennials, the lupine offers flowers resembling those of peas, in tight clusters up to 50 cm high. If you cut the faded stems, a rising flowering may surprise you in the fall. Available in a wide range of colors, our favorites are those that cover the palette from mauve to dark purple.
Bellflowers are very widespread and exist in various forms but always with flowers in bells or stars mainly in purple-to-purple tones. Whether it develops in a tapering or erected tuft, the bellflower is ideal for flowering a rock garden, a border or the holes of paving.
The Important Things about Anemone and Verbena
The rustic perennial anemone offers a wide variety of aspects, but its flat-cut flowers, with a pistil surrounded by a large bouquet of stamens, have a simple and crazy charm at the same time. The largest fill a massif while the smallest settle in undergrowth or rock garden. Its colors are very varied but the most appreciated is the Anemone coronaria that is called “the Admiral” with bright purple flowers!
The garden verbena is a perennial cultivated in a particularly floriferous annual, which forms an ample tuft ideal as a planter, or in suspension. Its small flowers with a central white eye are gathered in large terminal bouquets like pompoms. The hybrid verbena is available in all tones, and it is an annual whose flowering lasts all summer. It offers shades of purple ranging from purple to mauve through lilac and lavender tones.
Information about Ornamental Garlic and the Gomphrena
Less known, ornamental garlic is a bulbous plant that bears starflowers in spherical umbels forming very original and finely serrated balls, mainly in purple tones. There are many species but Allium flatulence with dense purple is the best.
From the Amaranthaceae family, the gomphrena develops inflorescences during the summer that resemble those of clover, which means ovoid, oblong formed by red-orange bracts. They are more original when they are purple. They create beautiful bouquets that you can also dry.
Perennials with purple flowers embody the new trend in the garden. Elegant and refined, this color evokes mystery and spells when they are dark. Lighter, tending towards lilac, they offer freshness and delicacy. In the sun or the shade, in wet or dry soil, whether you want to garnish a bed, plant a rock garden or highlight a border, the perfect plant exists.
There are many purple flowers. Nevertheless, the most beautiful ones are lavender, the Peruvian heliotrope, the wisteria, the lilac and so many more. You can find all of them at your florist, and he could make a very nice combination of purple flowers for the occasion you have if you want.
