Are there any colors that you avoid
in the garden? Nancy, I know you don't like pink and red. Tammy I think I remember reading that you don't like pink. I love pink but I have a hard time placing reds. In fact last year I moved all of my Hibiscus coccineus -- and I had about 20 -- down to a pond that's in one of the floodway fields. The pond needed something, and I couldn't stand how the H. coccineus looked with the golden yellow Rubeckia fulgida and the silvery mauve Joe Pye. I do have some hardy Amaryllis that a fellow GardenWebber in Mississippi sent me after Katrina (yes, she actually sent me plants, lol -- I had sent her plants and she sent me starts in return of what had survived the hurricane, which was amaryllis and crinum!). I love the Amaryllis -- they bloom early and stand alone in my garden with all of the emerging green. I also have some dark red iris which I ordered over 20 years old that I really like, but I've separated them from the others into their own color group.
So does your garden have a color scheme, or every color of the rainbow?
