The Sapphires of September

I love the color blue in the garden. Not that I don't love other colors, but there is just something about the soft splash of a blue spruce against an evergreen background, for example, that is strikingly artistic. And while there are a number of blues blooming earlier in the year, like the Forget-Me-Not's of spring or the Blue Wave petunias of summer, there are a few blue gems that sparkle in late-summer and early fall. No wonder September's birthstone is Sapphire!
