Beautiful Plants With Blue Flowers for Every Garden

Yellows, oranges, and pinks abound in the plant world, but blue flowers sometimes seem harder to find. Of the 280,000 flowering plants on Earth, only 10 percent of them are blue.

Consider the unusual hue of these blue flowers (light and dark) to brighten up your landscape or balance out warm-toned crops. A garden full of fresh white and blue flowers is a balm for the eyes on a hot summer day. If you want to add more blue flowers to your garden this year, here are some great options to look for.

1. Balloon flower

(Platycodon grandiflorus)
Zones 3-8

Be patient with this blue flower; blooms in the second year when grown from seed. The blue flower buds look like balloons before opening.

2. Plumbago

(Plumbago auriculata)
Zones 9-11

This sprawling shrub with blue flowers flourishes in heat and sunshine. Southern gardeners will be more successful with plumbago. As a bonus, it is drought tolerant once established.

3. Cornflower

(Centaurea cyanus)
Annual

Perhaps the bluest of all the blue flowers, the cornflower is generally grown from seed. This plant is also commonly known as the single bud.

4. Larkspur

(Larkspur)
Zones 4-8

The flowers also come in pink and white, but delphiniums are some of the best blue flowers available.

5. Salvia

(Salvia sp.)
Annual

There are many species of blue sage, including black and blue sage, cup sage, pitcher sage, and prairie sage. This variety makes it easy to find the most suitable for your garden.

6. Morning glory

(Ipomoea)
Annual

Search "Heavenly Blue" for the best blue flowers. Be aware that this vine can be a bit aggressive.

7. Blue cardinal flower

(Syphilitic lobelia)
Zones 4-9

The cardinal flower comes in bright red and cool blue. This plant, loved by hummingbirds and other pollinators, prefers moist soil.
