When planning a garden, look for bushes that thrive in your local environment and growing conditions. Consider the maintenance requirements for your bush and the time of year you can expect it to bloom.


Calluna, better known as heather, is a short shrub that sports a spray of small, purple buds. Rhododendrons come in varying shades of purple and grow up to 48 inches tall.


Buddleia, or butterfly bush, reaches heights of 60 inches with large, cone-shaped spikes of flowers. For something more fragrant, Wisteria, a climbing shrub, imparts a delicious scent.


Don't count out rose bushes as many varieties come in shades of purple, from the lavender tinted Blue Moon tea roses to the deep violet shade of Tuscany roses.


Purple's hue is harmonious with varying shades of blue and red, it's neighbours on the colour wheel. For a more striking display, it can be paired with yellow, it's complementary colour.
