It looks as if I took a walk like Harold in the children's book, taking my purple crayon. I want to repeat all these purples next year.
The Daturas have big knobby purple-tinged seed pods now.
You can just see a bit of Salvia leucantha with buds in this picture of melampodium and purple Datura. Mexican bush sage will soon add a purple haze.
Can you see the tiny lycoris bud nestled in the Persian Shield? Lycoris are starting to open elsewhere in the garden. I like the combination of Persian Shield and Licorice Plant which is new to the garden this year.
Persian Shield goes very well with 'Black Magic' colocasia.
A chance combination, Tithonia with purple althernanthera. The Gulf Frits love the mexican sunflower which is almost the color of the butterflies.
