― Alice Walker, The Color Purple

Nature LOVES to put purple and white right next to each other, especially when it comes to flowers. These purple water lilies with white centers are just beautiful. You can view more photos of these purple waterlilies here.

Here’s an amazing white and purple flower with long, thin petals that blooms on a shrub with almost white leaves. You can view more of these purple flowers here.

Wisteria blooms are some of my favorite and their white and purple clusters dangling down the trellis are gorgeous.

I love these tiny purple and white wildflowers I found on the side of a hiking trail this past spring.

Here is a different type of wildflowers, with some morning dew on them. They are still small, purple and white.

These flowers are purple and white too but they grow on a large shrub.

Sometimes you find purple flowers right next to white flowers, like this assortment of spring wildflowers.

California lupine is another type of wildflower, this one much larger than the ones I shared above.
