Magenta and lavender flowers often deer-resistant - Charleston Post CourierTuesday, August 01, 2017
For a part-shade bed, purple-flowered powdery mildew-resistant crepe myrtles will provide filtered shade if a few limbs are removed. Flower colors range from plum ‘Yuma’ and ‘Apalachee’ to violet ‘Catawba’ and ‘Powhatan.’ Because some deer will eat the shoots they can reach on small crepe myrtles, as large a tree as practical should be planted so deer can’t reach the leader.Shade-tolerant perennials that can be planted under a crepe myrtle include Lenten rose ‘Royal Heritage Strain’ (medium violet red) that blooms in late winter, common foxglove (medium orchid) that blooms in spring and ‘Amistad’ hybrid anise sage (dark violet) that blooms summer to frost.Purple foliage can be added by planting purple heart (Tradescantia pallida ‘Purpurea’) and pineapple lily ‘Sparkling Burgundy.’ These perennials produce flowers in violet and pink, respectively.All of the purple plants and flowers mentioned pair very well with white cultivars of the same species or other white-flowering plants. Depending on individual color preferences, some shades of pink or blue violet may fit in a purple-themed bed. Dusty miller is an excellent winter companion for any shade of orchid, magenta, violet or purple.Gardeners who don’t have to worry about browsing deer can add purple coneflower, dianthus, petunia, pentas, and purple-leaved ornamental sweet potato.ShrubsCrepe myrtleLoropetalum ‘Purple Daydream’ dwarfRose of SharonJapanese spirea ‘Little Bonnie’ dwarfPerennialsChrysanthemumDrumstick chivesPineapple lily ‘Sparkling Burgundy’Lenten rose ‘Royal Heritage’Purple heart (foliage)Mexican bush salviaSalvia ‘Amistad’Society garlicSweet grassTrailing lantanaAnnualsAfrican daisy (Osteospermum)AgeratumAlyssumAngeloniaDwarf gomphrenaFoxglove, commonMadagascar periwinklePurple fountain grass... http://www.postandcourier.com/columnists/magenta-and-lavender-flowers-often-deer-resistant/article_40ae5b10-60ed-11e7-a2f5-7746ba715d83.html

Have You Spotted the Giant Floral Displays Popping Up Around the City? - Pittsburgh MagazineWednesday, March 31, 2021
A mother of three boys who previously worked for Tommy Hilfiger and Dolce & Gabbana, Dickson says she came up with the idea for the installations after seeing florist Lewis Miller Design’s “Flower Flash” project in New York City. In February, she installed her first display, wrapping garlands of flowers around the columns of Shadyside’s Family House — which provides a “home away from home” for patients and their families seeking medical treatment in Pittsburgh. “To all of the healthcare workers and all of the patients and their families, this one’s for you!” Dickson wrote on Instagram of the project. Later that month, she spruced up her hometown area, coating a light pole and corner on Brilliant Avenue in Aspinwall with flowers. In early March, she struck again, creating an enormous bouquet atop a recycling bin on Penn Avenue and 21st Street in the Strip District. Beside the display, she used sidewalk chalk to quote French artist Henri Matisse’s famous line, “There are always flowers for those who want to see them.” Dickson told the Post-Gazette the recycling can project was particularly inspired because the already-cut flowers — from supplier BW Wholesale Florist in the Strip District — would have been thrown away had she not repurposed them. If you missed any of the installations, your chances of catching one have not wilted. The pop-up displays will continue to sprout up across the city, possibly through April, Dickson says — and suggestions as to where are welcome.
