I have flower colors on the brain right now.
I’m going to try some (mostly) single-color planting combinations in some sections of the long borders — and dramatic contrasts in others.
We have blooms all year round here and lots of space. The main borders are along the lower lawn, so I don’t think that the colorful arrangements will compete too much with our terrace views of the city and hills.
I’ll probably make a good, old mess at first, but I have a year to experiment and a year to make corrections.
The photos above are some reference pictures I took of all the flowers we have right now (a few things aren’t blooming). I’ve been going around and tagging the colors of the roses and daylilies as they bloom.
I have a number of flowering shrubs in the borders that are too big to move, so I will start my color selections with them.
