Siberian iris are often a rich blue-purple. They are happy growing in moist soil in sun or part-shade and are very cold hardy. Plant a few bulbs, and they will gradually grow into a generous clump. Beautiful by a pond if you have one.
Floss-flower (Ageratum) is a tidy plant that can be easily tucked into any empty spots in an annual
bed, or in a planter box or hanging basket. Not many flowers come in a soft lilac colour like it does, and it looks lovely paired with lemony yellow flowers . Also works well with other purple or pink flowers.
