Beautiful Blue Blooms!

Beautiful Blue Blooms!

We reckon that a change is good as a holiday, so why not add some blue to your garden.... These are our top two picks!

  • Evolvulus Pilosus 'Blue Eyes'
It is a versatile, tough, spreading plant with attractive, silky grey foliage and small, blue flowers which are produced mostly through the dry season.

An ideal plant for rockeries, retaining walls, hanging baskets and containers, where it's attractive foliage can cascade over the edges.

Grow in a sunny to partly shaded position in moist, well drained soil. Keep soil moist but not wet.  Trim occasionally to promote bushiness. 
  • Salvia 'Black & Bloom'
They are easy to grow, and require little attention. Tough as nails, thrives in heat, drought and humidity.

Black and Bloom have an upright habit that loves full sun and will bloom all through the dry season and possibly in the wet season also.

The blue colour of the flowers against the black stem stands out in every landscape and container.
