More Information About Blue Foliage Plants
Perennials with blue foliage make you green with envy! Certain plants produce a thick coating of a waxy substance called cutin on their leaf surface that gives the foliage a blue or silvery appearance. Some of the more well-known and popular blue foliage plants include agave, dianthus, hosta and yucca. But, there are some lesser known plants with azure-ability such as carex, dasylirion, elymus, eryngium, othonna, and rudbeckia. Here at Plant Delights Nursery, we have a huge on-line catalog, so we have created this blue foliage plant mini-catalog for you cerulean searchers.
We love to combine blue foliage plants with yellow flowered plants and with dark-leaved plants as they really stand out together. Blue foliage plants also go well with white, especially when the two colors occur together on a variegated leaf, as with hosta.
