Blue Hydrangea The Blue Moon hydrangea (shown here) is a hybrid (Hydrangea macrophylla), and thrives in shaded areas, such as the north side of a house, unlike other Hydrangeas (Nikko Blue) which require full sun. The shrubs grow into large mounds of green leaves dotted with long lasting 8 inch cobalt blue flowers (called droopy pom-poms or mopheads). This Hydrangea makes a beautiful hedge, growing 3 to 6 feet tall and 4 feet wide. The blue flower color depends on aluminum levels and acid soil pH. Flowers will be deep blue in acidic soil, lightening to a very pretty light blue to pink in alkaline conditions. If you have poor soil, add 3-4 tablespoons of aluminum sulfate to one gallon of water. Beginning in late Winter, drench the soil twice per month through late Summer. Acid soils usually contain plenty of aluminum. Hydrangeas prefer moist, fertile, well-drained soil. They are fully hardy in zones 7-11, but flower buds will be killed if temperatures drop to -10ºF (-23ºC). Hydrangeas shouldn’t be pruned except to remove old flowers. The Blue Moon hybrid is available online from Michigan Bulb Company.

Blue Sea Holly Blue Sea Holly (Eryngium alpinum) displays gorgeous metallic blue stems and flowers from late spring through early fall. The variety “Saphire Blue” (pictured right) offers the largest flowers, starting out green then darkening to an intense blue that almost looks spray-painted. The sunnier the location, the bluer the plants become. They look like thistles with a star-like collar at the base of each bloom. The Sapphire Blue cultivar is a sterile hybrid, and thus is not invasive like the wild form in the Northwest. The flowers dry out in autumn with considerable ornamental appeal for long-lasting dried flower arrangements. Growing up to three feet tall, they do best in zones 5-9. Available online from Swallowtail Garden Seeds and T’s Flowers.

Blue Salvia Salvias (also known as Sages) flower for a long period, and do well in hot, dry conditions. They provide wonderful fragrance, and are some of the best summer-blooming annuals and perennials. The species (left), also known as Mealy Sage or Mealy-Cup Sage (Salvia farinacea), can reach three or four feet in height, with bright blue to lavender flowers. They are widely available at local nurseries, or online from Mountain Meadow Seeds. Bog Sage (Salvia uliginosa) is a late summer to fall bloomer with azure blue flowers on a steadily spreading plant (right). Salvias can be too aggressive in a formal area but great in a naturalized area. Salvias grow fairly rapidly, and less hardy types (usually grown as annuals) may reach 5 to 6 feet by the end of the season. There are also many Salvias that will stay low enough to be used at the front edge of flowerbeds. Another wonderful shorter blue variety is the Blue Oak Sage (Salvia chamaedryoides), available from Plant Delights Nursery. The plants form a nice mass to 18″ wide, with 12″ tall true sky-blue flowers blooming from early summer through early fall. Salvias enjoy well-drained humousy soil and full sun exposure.

It's very hard to find flowers in shades of blue. Most blue flowers lean more toward lavender or purple, than a true blue. Sunlight also plays tricks on blue coloring and the photos you see in seed catalogs are often not the colors that wind up in your garden. Blue flowers may remain illusive, but the the plants highlighted here come darn close, if not right on the money.

Blue Forget-Me-Not This Chinese species (Cynoglossum amabile), called Blue Showers (left), is not a true Forget-Me-Not, but flowers very similar to the real thing, and is much less expensive. Their popularity is due in part to their hardiness in many climates. With eye-catching sky blue blooms, this annual self-sows 4 to 5 times a year in coastal climates, and at least once or twice a year in harsher climes, providing an endless succession of classic blueness in a bush style. Plants grow up to 18″ tall, and can be planted in zones 3-10. Seeds are available at American Meadows. The real Forget-Me-Not (Myosotis alpestris), Blue Ball or Bobo Blue (right), grows in ball-shaped plants with indigo blue flowers. Plants can reach up to 6″ in height, and are kept best in zones 3-8. Available from Bluestone Perennials and Renee’s Garden.
