Purple Perennial Flowers

Enhance Your Garden with Purple Perennial Flowers

Purple is a wonderful deep colour, usually associated with royalty and nobility. Thanks to its strange nature it always creates an unusual effect - being a combination of a strong warm color (red) and equally strong cold one (blue), it gives a sensation of something mysterious, romantic and tender. Perhaps for that reason all the purple perennial flowers are so delicate and precious.

Purple flowers are not as wide spread as white, yellow and pink perennials, but lots of flower lovers appreciate having them in their gardens. Purple can be mixed with flowers of other colors or used separately.
