Blue Monochromatic Garden Color Ideas

A blue monochromatic (single hue) garden can provide your outdoor space with a sense of cool serenity, since the color blue evokes a sense of calm we associate with the open sky and sea. While it’s hard to find “true blues” in nature, (flowers tend to fall more into a blue-violet category) there are hybrids that now offer closer approximations to actual blue. Consider the following options to include in your yard:

 

Trees

  • Colorado Blue spruce
  • Blue Atlas Cedar

 

Shrubs

  • Blue Arrow Juniper
  • Blue Star Juniper
  • Hydrangea “Nikko Blue”

 

Groundcovers

  • Sedum “Blue Carpet”
  • Blue Star Creeper
  • Lithodora “Grace Ward”
  • Veronica “Christy”

 

Perennials

  • Nepeta “Purrsian Blue”
  • Perennial Grass “Blue Fescue”
  • Euphorbia “Blue Haze”
  • Blue Balloon Flower
  • Big Blue Sea Holly

 

Annuals

  • Lobelia “Blue Cascade”
  • Dusty Miller
  • Leonora Widow’s Tears
  • Agapanthus “Summer Love Blue”
  • Loddon Royalist Anchusa
  • Evolvulus “Blue My Mind”
  • Salvia “Playin’ the Blues”
