When you think about flower gardens, you probably imagine a rainbow of colors, various shapes, and big and small sizes of flowers changing throughout the seasons. If you think back to the indigo, or deep blue, flowers that you’ve seen, you’ll understand why indigo gardening is a 2020 trend. Indigo doesn’t occur only in plant life. Here are a few ways to introduce indigo into your outdoor gardening and decor. 

Inserting Indigo Gardening 


  • Flowers: The focus of indigo gardening is definitely flowers. Here is a list of blue flowers with which you can adorn your gardening mix:hydrangea, delphinium, Indigo flower, iris, hyacinth, clematis, salvia, Georgia blue, lungwart, lobelia, lupine, pincushion flower, and bluebells.
  • Gazing balls: If you don’t have a gazing ball in your flower garden, you are missing out on an opportunity to accentuate the light in your lawn and add vibrant color. Many gazing balls are blue in color and bring a bit of the sky down into your flower bed. 
  • Doormats: Depending on the exterior color of your home, you might be able to add an indigo doormat to your mix and bring more color to your front porch. Blue is trending, but it is also a happy and inviting color perfect for entryways. 
  • Wreaths: If a blue doormat doesn’t fit your color scheme, a wreath of indigo flowers will allow you to add a touch of blue no matter what color your home is. 
  • Details: There are a thousand ways to add blue to your garden, and many of those options fall under the category of details. Blue stained glass hangings, hummingbird feeders, flower pots, or yard ornaments can bring blue to the outdoors. Even using blue gardening tools or having a blue wheelbarrow can make gardening a bit more joyful. 

Do Indigo Your Own Way

If you want to keep up with the latest gardening trends, then indigo is the way to go. However, you don’t have to abide by the list above to get this beautiful blue in your yard. Come up with your own ways to insert indigo. There are many more indigo flowers than are listed above, and there are many more details that could be purchased or made in indigo as opposed to other colors. It is a trend that is popular now and has some long-term staying power. Once it is replaced with another trend, indigo will still be as beautiful as ever.
