187. Potty: Winslow Farm Flowers

Stand sells annuals, perenniels and some produce in season.

Common bedding plant annuals with blue flowers include ageratum, verbena, the occasional petunia and Salvia farinacea varieties such as "Victoria Blue." Nierembergia is available in a good blue. The deceptively delicate looking lobelias offer some of the best sparkling blues among annuals

 

Old fashioned annuals include some superb blues. Centaurea cyanus (Batchelor Buttons) has lovely true blue flowers and is also the namesake for the expression cornflower blue. If you enjoy self seeding annuals, you must try the annual delphinium (larkspurs) and Nigella (love-in-a-mist.) Both of these are often sold as a mixture with the colors including blue, white and pink. Nigella "Miss Jekyll" is a blue strain.
