I've done some searching and can't seem to pull up any past posts about actual planning. When it comes time to plant a new bed or area, what do you do? It is overwhelming looking at all the beautiful colors, textures and sizes of hostas. Do you plan sizes and placement first, then break it down to colors and then find plants to match?
What do you find to be the most pleasing flow of colors and textures? Bunch of similar colors together, then bounce to a new color? Or possibly bounce from one color to the next, freeflow style? Then the question of sizes, is it always big in back, then mediums, smalls, with tiny guys out front?
Any tips you can think of would be very appreciated. I'm going to be planting the side of my house. It's a clean slate, nothing there except a box that will be built around the ac unit. The bed right now has gentle curves. It's roughly 30ft long and will have a walking path on the other side.
