Most floral colors do have some sort of fan base. There are gardeners, for example, who love yellows, reds and oranges for their ability to light up an otherwise drab area of the landscape with vibrant color. For others, looking for more subdued colors, soft pink or lavender flowers may be favorites.
But purple flowers (along with blue flowers) seem to be in a league of their own when it comes to eliciting oohs and ahs from people, whether they be casual gardeners or die-hard plant fanatics. Remember, purple was traditionally the color of royalty! Purple is also considered one of the cool colors that help relax us -- and who couldn't use a little more relaxation in today's world?
