Herbs have Beauty!

Post  Theresa on Sun Jan 27, 2013 5:23 pm

Gardeners grow herbs for many reasons, medicines, dyes, culinary uses, but herbs can be grown just for their beauty alone.

Many lavenders, rosemaries, basils, thymes, dills and others of beautiful colors and forms make them useful anywhere in the garden and containers.

Here is a list of a few herbs you might want to add to your garden for enjoying their beauty.

Catmint nepeta- 'Six Hills Giant', for it's gray/green foliage and masses of lavender/blue flowers

Calamint- Calamontha nepeta nepta, produces knee-high clouds of pale blue flowers all summer, both are great for hot sunny spots.

Two gold-leaved herbs that have a brilliant color contrast,

Variegated Russian comfrey, symphtum x uplandicum 'Axminster Gold'

Golden lemon balm, melissa offieinalis 'Aurea'

Blue-flowered hybrid hussop Agastache 'Blue Fortune'

Fennel, Foeniculum vulgare dulce 'Smoky' with red-purple foliage and red flowers

Oregano Origanum laevigatum 'Hopley's Purple' with blue-purple flowers

Add some herb beauty to your garden this year!
