Porcelain berry

This vine-like plant is attractive in all respects, but particularly for its stunningly coloured berries, which range from soft blue-green through turquoise to purple.

Brimeura amethystina AGM NCG 242 Brimeura amethystina AGM
Amethyst hyacinth, Spanish hyacinth

The delicate, pale blue, nodding bells of this pretty bulbous plant are fragrant and much loved by butterflies. Although the common name refers to it as a hyacinth, it is in fact only distantly related. NOTE: Not to be confused with the Spanish bluebell, which is a thug and…

Siberian bugloss 'Jack Frost'

One of my favourite spring-flowering plants, with delicate sprays of sky-blue flowers, somewhat similar to forget-me-not, but with rather more wiry flower stems, above large, heart-shaped, exquisitely marked leaves.

Campanula glomerata NCG 404 Campanula glomerata

Clusters of deep-blue bell-shaped flowers on straight stems from early summer. A very pretty plant, but spreads by underground runners and can be rather invasive, so position carefully.

Campanula punctata 'Kent Belle' NCG 598 Campanula punctata 'Kent Belle'
Bellflower 'Kent Belle'

Nodding heads of deep-violet narrow, tubular flowers adorn this attractive campanula. Will probably not always come true from seed, but my experience with another campanula with similarly shaped flowers (Campanula takesimana) is that collected seeds are are likely to produce plants with blooms of a similar shape and habit, though…
