As a bonus, many of them have very pretty leaves that will look good in your garden even when they are not blooming.

Hopefully you have found some inspiration to include a blue-flowering plant or two in your garden!

These plants do not do well in hot and humid weather, so are harder to keep alive if you are gardening in the South East.
