Purple Flowering Shrubs
Purple flowering shrubs are one of the most popular shrub categories. This popularity is obvious since purple colors are eye-catching and often bring on a second glance. There are many shades of purple, so therefore, a wide range of shrubs. The shrubs most used in landscapes include Butterfly Bushes (Buddleia), Lilacs (Syringa), Rose of Sharon (Hibiscus sgriacus), and Russian Sage (Perouskia). It may be a bit of an overstatement, but a shade of purple from these species should satisfy anyones taste for the color purple!
Selection from these aforementioned plants are available in many heights, foliage colors, and spreads. It is relatively easy to meet a specific landscape requirement with a purple flowering shrub. These shrubs are all deciduous and perennial bloomers. There are often minute differences of shades in purple flowers. The discussion of these differences, such as shades of purples, lavenders, and some blues, is in the eye of the beholder, and not written in stone!
