Now more than ever, we gardeners are retreating to our yards as a place of solace, cheer and hope – a safe haven from all the uncertainty and anxiety we experience every time we read the news or turn on the TV. We NEED our gardens more than ever to lift our spirits, keep us active and help us from going stir crazy while we safely shelter in place and limit our social interactions. Lucky for us, the season is still ripe for planting!
And so we turn to a color that almost never fails to put a smile on our faces: purple! Favored by royalty and children alike, it's sumptuous and sophisticated without taking itself too seriously. Our symphony of grapey goodness starts with one of our signature poppies – Papaver 'Lauren's Grape'. We've paired her with our most fragrant and bloomiferous sweet pea Lathyrus odoratus ‘Cupani’, carefree and quirky Linaria triornithophora “Three Birds Flying” and upstanding Hollyhock 'Halo Purple' for a quartet of bloom sure to put a smile on your face, too! Check out all of the beautiful bloomers below!
