Shades of blue

I wandered out to our loading dock on this beautiful crisp fall day, to see our latest plant deliveries and encountered a sea of blue Plumbago flowers.
 Plumbago is an evergreen shrub, flowering in various shades of blue. Plumbago auriculata, also known commonly as Blue Plumbago, Cape Plumbago, Cape Leadwort and Skyflower, is the most commonly seen.
A native to South Africa, Plumbago is a popular ornamental, and is considered moderately drought tolerant. Typically it is used in borders, foundation plantings, and for color massed in beds.
