50 Shades of Purple

What Do Purple Flowers Mean?
Purple is another color that is well-known as a symbol of royalty. Purple flowers can also represent dignity, mystery, success, magic and pride. Overall, this color represents admiration and accomplishment.  It is also my favorite color. Purple also must be the Creators favorite color as there is a plethora of vivid varied purple plants. My Mexican sage is in glorious bloom right now and I don't think I have anything blooming in my garden more resplendid than this one plant. 
I have listed below all the purple plants I could think of and the seasons they bloom in. You will probably think of some I missed.  Enjoy!
