Bargyla, some of us grow truly blue flowers but the color may be due to our 
soil. Your soil may incorporate something that produces lavender.  I grow 
flax (sky blue blossoms) and Alpine columbines (dark blue, but people in 
the Midwest tell me it's purple. Maybe there it is, but here it's navy 
blue).  Margaret L, in SW Idaho
