Color in the garden
I've been gardening for a while in a small spaces. So in order to get all the plants I want in, I usually end up with one or two of each. My "style" (if you can call it that) is to group different plants together that I think will look good. However, the color thing continues to puzzle me. Since all the plant colors occur in nature, and nature combines them in all sorts of ways, is there really a "wrong" color combination in a garden? I've heard things like never combine yellows with golds, or pinks and oranges. Since my space is so small, I'm very likely to end up with these colors in proximity to each other. I have a friend who insisted that because she was gardening in a small space, her garden had to be monochromatic (maroon and white). I thought it was pretty, but dare I say it? Dull. So I'm curious how others deal with the color issue. Any thoughts?
