Purple Garden | Introduction
The colour purple represents many things. By incorporating purple flowers, plants, herbs, and vegetables into your garden you can completely transform the landscape elevating it to a greater level of beauty and tranquility.
Purple works well in floral combinations in the garden. The complementary purple and yellow is often associated with the beginning of Spring. The blend of purple and orange offers a touch of sophistication whilst white contrasts well with purple in the shady areas of the garden.
The many purple vegetables include aubergine (or eggplant), broccoli, carrots and potatoes. Herbs include Rosemary and Lavender. Fruits include grapes, figs and passion fruit along with many types of berry.
Purple in Nature
As you look around you may have realised that purple tends to be rare in your natural environment. Well it isn’t technically a natural colour. However, if you know where to look it is actually more prevalent than you think.
There are the stunning spectral effects of purple sunsets and night skies, animal life includes birds, insects and crustaceans. And lets us not forget some of the ageless stone formations embedded with crystals.
Our aim is to share with you some of the best ways to utilise purple in your garden, both alone and in combination with other colours. We will also look at some of the beautiful examples of the colour purple featuring elsewhere in our natural environment.
