Blooming Blues: A Guide to Flowers in Shades of Blue!

Calise + Sam's Wedding

Welcome, flower enthusiasts, to a journey through the world of blooms in the serene and captivating hue of blue. While we often associate flowers with vibrant reds, cheerful yellows, and delicate pinks, there’s an undeniable allure to the more unusual, yet equally beautiful, blue blossoms. In this guide, we’ll explore some of nature’s most exquisite creations that come dressed in shades of blue, from the striking to the subtle. The shade of blue isn’t common in nature, so it’s a bit hard to source these colored flowers, but hopefully this guide will help give you an idea of what flowers can meet your blue expectations!

Agapanthus

Agapanthus (often referred to as the Lily of the Nile) typically feature large, spherical clusters of funnel-shaped flowers atop long, slender stems. The flowers can vary in color, including shades of blue, purple, white, or pink.
