Oh I hope I can get mine to look that nice. What is the little blue flower lower right corner?

thanks, actually not sure what the little blue flower is, it was inherited in the garden but spreads and grows on mass and all of a sudden a sea of colour.
The foxgloves were plants off my parents, I am hoping they have seeded well and grow again this year.

sounds like just the plant I need.(the little low growing blue).. I have a sunny sandy loam front garden spot where I plan to plant escholtzia(?sp) California Poppy. They have (by the packet) "Silky, golden-orange flowers ...bloom early ...lacy blue-gray foliage. ...compact...drought tolerant and sturdy." and I'm looking for a low growing perennial blue for complement to the poppy's orange. My zone is zone 5 b... you are probably zone 7 or 8 right?
maybe I will have to look for an annual... I have clumping lobelia which is a beautiful sky blue...but it is too tall to interplant with the poppy.
Have always loved foxglove and delphiniums... hope to have better luck with them this season so I'll have some pics for show and tell on goY.

the soil ph level is 7/8
guess you could adjust your soil or perhaps do some in a container

you could always get ideas by doing a search on site by colour blue/purple. I had a look but the one person who had this flower also did not have its name on it. Sure we will find out. Some Campanullas seem quite similiar.
