Wild Flowers - Blue or Lilac
Some of our wild flowers are blue or lilac, and most of those shown here are fairly common although some have very short flowering periods.
The Botanical Society of Britain & Ireland has a page with links to books, websites and downloadable files to help you identify wild plants.
A useful free guide was produced by the National Plant Monitoring Scheme.
A useful book is “Collins complete guide to British Wild Flowers”.
