Thank you for visiting Purplebear's Purple Flowers and Plants. Our web site's devoted to pictures of purple flowers and plants as well as information about them, other garden photos and our hummingbird blog. We plan to keep adding to our existing collection of purple flowers and garden pictures as we have more photos to do so. We're including a lot of information about each of the flowers as well. We thought it might be helpful to explain some garden terms, include some gardening tips and we've added a Zone map for those of you who might want to reference them. The Flower Directory will show you where you can find everything and will let you know when we've added new pictures, information and pages.

Spring is Here

Purple crocuses

Spring is probably the most anticipated time of the year for all of us who love our gardens. The first flowers to bloom in our garden are the crocus, followed by daffodils, tulips and then the allium. Perennials are starting to grow like our phlox, salvia, Russian sage, penstemon, agastache, astilbe and butterfly bush.

Spring is also the time we get the annuals we want for our containers and flower beds to add lots of color and more importantly plants for our hummingbirds and butterflies. This year we got some milkweed seeds to try for the first time for the butterflies and hummingbirds. We usually plant cardinal climber vine and salvia black and blue for the hummingbirds because they seem to like them the best.
