Lupins are flowers in fragrant clusters with a very pronounced blue color or even sometimes lighter and slightly golden. It does not like clay soils or calcareous soils. They are easy to grow and almost wild. The more the soil is rich in silica, the more the blue is flamboyant. The Baptisias australis is the easiest to succeed, it is also the finest.

The hyacinth comes in different forms: the hyacinth of the Orient and the hyacinth of the woods. The oriental hyacinth measures between 15 and 25 cm, it can be single or in clusters as in the photo. It comes in different shades of blue, but also in white, red, pink, and yellow. You grow it in the sun or partial shade, outdoors or indoors in forced cultivation. It is particularly suitable for beds. The bluebell is different and grows in the undergrowth or in heather soil. It reproduces naturally and comes in the form of ears.
The hydrangea is a flower in a round cluster. The most difficult thing is not to cultivate it, but rather to keep it well blue. There are however tricks for that, it is necessary to put slate in pieces at the foot and around the shrub. It is the acidity of the soil that determines the hue of these flowers, the more acidic it is, the bluer it is. Aluminum sulfate provides the necessary pH.

6.Brodiae or Triteleia
The Brodiae or Triteleia is for many of us a beautiful unknown. Like almost all bulb flowers, you won’t see it in the summer anymore. It flowers in June, but its foliage appears in winter. It should be planted in the fall in well-drained soil that is not too poor. It prefers sufficiently mild climates. It also needs to be dry in winter.
She is often called the bluebird. It flowers between June and the first frosts. We love the intense blue of its flowers with their garnet heart. It has a diameter of 8 cm and can go up to 2.50 m. When it is exposed to 20°, it can become hardy with age. On the other hand, it must be protected from frost during its first years, when it remains the most fragile.
