Unless you want a crazy-quilt cottage garden featuring every color in the rainbow (and hey — those are good, too!), most people want to choose two flower colors that will popâ€¦.but which two? If youâ€™re ready to step outside the norm, here are some eye-catchers to try.
Red & White: To avoid this combination seeming â€œbeen there, done that,â€ add some silvery-green in the foliage to liven things up. This duo is great for Christmastime as well as mid-summer flag-flying gardens!
Red & Purple: There is something a bit Monet-ish about this combination that makes it classic and yet slightly unexpected.
Silver & Purple: This combination is classy but never dull. I think silver foliage with nearly any color instantly creates an elegant but modern feel. Try silver and orange or yellow for an even more updated color scheme!
Orange & Lime Green: These two colors will give your garden a citrus-y tropical feel guaranteed to jolt you awake. If youâ€™re really feeling daring, throw some purple in!
Chocolate & Green: There is all kinds of foliage in chocolate colors, and when itâ€™s offset by any shade of green, it feels sophisticated and new.
Donâ€™t play it safe this year! Even your garden needs updating once in awhile. — Jenny P.
