Blue is electric, mysterious, seductive and cool -- for many of us, a garden filled with bewitching blue flowers is a tantalizing notion. However, blue is much more effective in plant design as a partner than a solo act. From palest periwinkle to deepest indigo, garden photographer Janet Davis will cover a palette of beautiful blue blossoms from early spring to mid-autumn and provide loads of ideas for designing with blue, including blue furnishings and accents.
