Last year I grew a white garden and it was spectacular. This year I'd like to try my hand at a blue garden. I'd like some ideas of annuals I could use.
I always have had good luck with bachelor's buttons (cornflower). Very easy to grow from seed, prolific bloomers, good cut flowers. If you want just blues, rather than the more popular assortments, shop around for "Blue Boy." Love-in-a-mist is also a good choice if you want to start from seeds.
If you want to buy bedding plants, there are many choices, such as blue sage (salvia), which you can find anywhere, or lobelia or campanula.
Hi Donna Marie,
You might look for Plumbago, Porter's Weed,
Blue Salvia, and Blue Daze. You should get a
lovely blue garden with those hardy plants.
They are also varied in greens and textured foliages
in that selection.
Hope this helps.

Don't forget Blue Flax, my favorite. It blooms a very long time.
