Blue plants

Blue plant colours range from cool icy hues to deep royal blues and the contrast against green leaves and stems is quite breath-taking. Blue coloured houseplants can have a positive effect on your mood and create a feeling of relaxation and calm.

You can also grow blue plants in your garden, such as the pale blue Amsonia Tabernaemontana which looks great in borders, or the pink/blue Adenophora Bulleyana, with its impressive tall spikes.
