With purple tied to royalty and ceremony, purple flowers represent dignity, pride and success. An arrangement filled with purple blooms represents accomplishment and admiration.
Having said that, here I am with four deep purple-coloured flowers. No… not the ones that are generally used in flower arrangements!
Purple princess flowers (Tibouchina semidecandra) and Bush clock vine flowers (Thunbergia erecta) are produced on sturdy shrubs. They are attractive hedge plants in any garden.
Butterfly-pea flower (Clitoria ternatea) and Purple morning glory (Ipomoea purpurea) are climbers. They are excellent for garden fencing.
Purple butterfly-pea flower is well known for its use as a caffeine free beverage (tea), widely used in many Asian countries.
