The Purples Have It: Bring Violet To Life In Your Yard

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 29 July , 2015

There is very little that is more beautiful than the soft lavender or deep violet of some of San Diego’s native flowering blooms. If you want to bring a spot of lovely color to your yard, let Juniper Landscape Company help you find and plant some of our lovely native flowers to bring out the violet in your landscape.

Purple: The Color of Royalty

Purple is a deep, rich color that calls to mind royalty and its lighter pastel version, lavender, is soothing to the eye. Purple appears in a surprising array of plants, including:

  • Eggplant—The deep, rich purple of the eggplant hints at the soft pink, tasty flesh inside.
  • Artichoke—These blossoms are a beautiful lavender and the fruits are delicious delicacies.
  • Wisteria—This flowering vine is a lovely addition to any trellis or gateway.
  • Lilac—This hardy shrub regularly puts out lovely blossoms that look a bit like pine cones in shape.
  • Purple needlegrass—This lovely groundcover is the state grass of California.
  • Irises and roses—whether you choose a natural purple bulb plant such as the iris or a hybrid cultivated bloom such as the rose, purple blossoms are breathtaking in your flower beds.

What Are Some Purple San Diego Plants I Can Use In My Yard?

If you want some beautiful purple flowering plant choices for your San Diego yard, try these varieties:

  • The Pride of Madeira or Echium candicans. This breathtaking plant can be seen in Old Town San Diego and was probably brought to the area by settlers from the island of Madeira. The lovely flowering stems are covered in purple blooms and the whole plant will grow up to nine feet tall, making this a great choice for the back of a flower bed.
  • The Lily of the Nile, Agapanthus africanus. It is not a lily and does not grow on the Nile, but this beautiful flower is a favorite with its lovely purple blossoms. It also blooms in white.
  • Iceplant, Carpobrotus edulis. The lovely star-shaped blooms of this low-growing ground cover appear in a beautiful lavender that stuns visitors to your garden. It is also one of the easiest plants to grow, requiring very little maintenance once they are rooted.

Juniper Landscape Company was on-time,... Read More

    I have a side strip of yard which is on the street. The original landscaping was VERY high maintenance and not attractive. I was always out there cleaning up the leaf litter or be fined by the HOA. I hired Juniper Landscape Company. They came out and actually listened to what I wanted. They... Read More

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
