Blue is a hard flower color...not too many choices out there that are true blue, so to speak. Delphinium, cornflower, muscari, and hydrangea are a few; but none of these flowers really work well together. They are different shapes, sizes, lengths, vary in tenderness etc. So it is definitely a challenge making them work together. Plus too much of any one color just tends to look washed out - especially BLUE.
So I trusted my own artistic intuition here and married in some purples and some purples on the verge of magenta. I think the results are subtle but very pretty.
