From the early time you open your eyes until the final moment before you close them for sleep, these little gems are gracing your presence. And even though they share this time with many other beautiful purple flowers, having (hopefully) given not one thought to the existence of these little lovelies, they still manage to leave their mark on anyone who has had eye contact with them.
Here are 9 beautiful examples of good morning purple flowers that will help wake you up just a bit earlier and give you something nice to think about during those first few minutes after waking up:
1) The Stinging Nettle [Urtica dioica]
The stinging nettle is a plant of very humble beginnings. It’s not a pretty flower to look at, but it has its charm. Its bright green leaves have little pricks that cause uncomfortable itching and sometimes even a nasty rash for those who touch them without gloves. These pricky feelings come from the tiny little hairs on the leaves of this beautiful purple flower. While they may seem painful to some, their beauty has been admired since ancient times. There is even a phrase derived from these plants: ‘to feel/look like something the cat dragged in. It’s an idiom meaning you look terrible after being out all night partying or something along those lines.
2) Sowa Rigpa [Saussurea costus]
The name Saussurea costus comes from Nicolas-Théodore de Saussure, a Swiss naturalist during the 1700s who discovered this plant. This beautiful purple flower has long been used in ancient traditions around Asia as a stimulant to help people feel more focused and alert when they need to be. It is also antispasmodic, which means it relaxes the body and can help ease stomach cramps, muscle tension, spasms of the bladder, and other similar issues.
3) Morning Glory [Ipomoea alba]
The beautiful purple flowers blooming on this Ipomoea alba are not only stunningly beautiful; many people around the world also consider them to be a way to wake up spiritually. It is not uncommon for people of many religions to have morning glory seeds next to their bed so they can eat them in the morning before meditation or prayer; this is because of the effect they have on inducing a relaxed feeling which makes it easier to enter an altered state of consciousness.
4) Impatiens [Impatiens] [balsamina]
Impatiens are not just used to get you up in the morning; they are also considered by many to be a symbol of healing. They have been used for hundreds of years in countries worldwide to heal wounds and burns caused by fire. It is said that because these purple flowers tolerate heat so well, it is easier for them to treat such serious injuries than other flowers, which may perish after only a few minutes exposed to such high temperatures.
5) White Clover [Trifolium repens]
The White Clover is a variety of clover that has been cultivated for use by gardeners throughout the world. It comes in many different colors, but this purple flower is most commonly used to help people feel more energetic, clear-headed, and focused. This is why it’s grown so much on farms because if large fields are worked by human or animal labor, it can become very hard to focus on your work without getting bored.
6) Red Clover [Trifolium pratense]
The red clover is a flower that has been used for hundreds of years by people from various religions because it helps to open up awareness and increase our levels of energy when we need them most. It does this in a way that doesn’t leave you feeling nervous or jittery which can happen when you use other stimulants like coffee or tea. This beautiful purple flower will help bring balance into your life if taken in the morning before meditation; this will ensure that your energy is spread out evenly throughout the rest of the day, so you don’t get over-excited too much about anything.
7) Lavender [Lavandula angustifolia]
Even though this beautiful purple flower does not contain any active ingredients that give you energy like other plants on this list, the fact remains that if you use lavender to wake up in the morning, your mind should still feel clear and alert much more than normal. This is because lavender works by stimulating different parts of the brain to release hormones that make us happy; this brings about clarity of mind and the ability to concentrate.
8) Purple Tulip [Tulipa ‘Mabel Grey’]
Professional athletes and sports teams worldwide widely use this beautiful purple flower because it helps them perform with increased mental acuity and energy. This is known as an adaptogen because it helps regulate hormones in our bodies, making us feel more confident and focused. The effects of this flower are best felt when taken early in the day or directly after a workout; this will make sure that you have enough stamina leftover from your purple tulip for even the hardest physical activity if needed.
9) Purple Rose [Rosa ‘Plena’ ]
This beautiful purple rose has been used for meditation by Buddhist monks and Hindu yogis for hundreds of years. It increases a person’s awareness of their surroundings while also giving them the energy to meditate throughout the day. It was discovered many centuries ago that rubbing a handful of purple rose petals against each other can give off an electric-like shock; this is believed to happen because of the static electricity released by the petals. Some people also use these purple rose petals to make a tea that they then drink before meditating:)
