This is simply a garden that includes all of the colors on the spectrum. It’s absolutely beautiful, but it also will attract things like hummingbirds, butterflies and bumblebees. It’s a little-known fact that the bumblebees love purple and blue and butterflies and hummingbirds prefer orange and red.
