The Cebu Blue Pothos is an eye-catching vine best known for its blue-green leaves. In true Pothos nature, this trailing plant looks perfect in a hanging planter. But you could also place it on a windowsill or a kitchen shelf, letting the oval leaves hang down from their height. 

No matter where you place this stunning little plant, you’re sure to benefit from those tranquil blue hues. Remember though, it needs plenty of indirect sunlight and should be watered once the top couple of inches of soil is dry. 

3. Blue Pearl Sedum

For the best blue effect, plant this little succulent in a decorative pot on your windowsill or sidetable. 

4. Blue Hydrangeas

Bring your cottage garden indoors by growing Blue Hydrangeas! In my opinion, nothing is quite as classically blue as a small bush of blue hydrangeas. Make them the focal point of your home by placing them on a countertop or your center island in a kitchen.

No matter where you place them, though, you’re sure to have a brilliant burst of blue. 

But, as these plants need plenty of sunlight and warmth, make sure they’re getting several hours of indirect light.
