One of our favorite things about the beginning of each year is the announcement of color of the year. And this year is no different! We’ve always loved shades of purple especially when it comes to floral bouquets so this year is perfect because the Pantone’s Color of the Year is Ultra Violet. The color of the year has put us in a full blown purple obsession when it comes to flowers this year. Here are some of our favorite purple flowers. 

Lavender is native to Europe and eastern Africa, the Mediterranean, southwest Asia to southeast India. We love lavender for so many reasons! First, it’s beautiful and second, it adds an amazing fragrance to any room. It’s also often used commercially for the extraction of essential oils. Lavender is also one of our favorite shades of purple in addition to ultra violet. 

Verbena is cultivated as a perennial plant and is also known as “purpletop” in U.S. gardens. This is likely a familiar flower that you often see in giant fields or big gardens that add a splash of color with it’s “‘purple tops.” Verbena is native to South America where it grows throughout warm regions. 

Bellflower is bell-shaped, tubular or star-shaped flower that often comes in shades of blue, white, pink and red. Our favorite color purples shades the edges of the white bellflowers. They have growth habits that range from low and creeping to tall and upright. 

Pasque Flowers are large violet purple flowers with contrasting yellow centers which is a beautiful combination of colors especially on a flower.  They do demands well drained soil when it comes to planting in your garden.
