The most favourite is Wisteria sinensis. It has elongated teasel-like heads full of pea flowers. Another one is Akebia quinata that gives both female and male flowers on the single plant. All the flowers produced are purple with lobed leaves.

More intact purples of Hebbes are Caledonia and Wingletye which usually covers the ground. Hydrangeas are famous among the gardeners because of their capacity to vary the colour of the flowers depending on the conditions they are grown in.

Purple aquilegias which have flowers that resemble jesters ‘caps are grown from seeds, but in case you are growing them year in year out, make sure your neighbours are growing the same flowers just like you because aquilegias hybridize easily.
We also have bearded irises such as Alexanders’ Ragtime Band in this category.

Asters with daisy flowers bloom well in flower seedbeds during the autumn. Aster novae-anglie ‘Purple Dome’s a whole plant with well-lit purple flowers. Another species is ‘Monch’ that is a little bit taller, but equally vivacious.

A classic example in this category is Miniature iris ‘George.’ It is 12cm in height, and its flowers grow upwards in the late winter. Another miniature is ‘Pauline’ with duller flowers as compared to ‘George.’
