|My Mom and sister creating a new plant bed in our Miami front yard|
You can see who is working LOL...love ya sis! You should see my sister garden in Atlanta now, wow!
I think this was around 1988.
So this post is all about crazy color combinations in the landscape. We are talking about cool contrasting colors, textures, shapes, sizes and variations. I am sure you have passed by a landscape that made your head turn and say, "wow, did you see that!?!" Yup, that's what I'm talking about friends! So here are a few of some of my favorites. I sure you will see a theme here of the color combinations I tend to gravitate towards, hee hee. Purples, chartreuse, pinks, yellows, orange and blues.
|Wow, chartreuse, red and purples - ferns, coleus and sweet potato all in one window box!|
|Not sure who to credit this super saturated purple & red flower|
bed to but it's really incredible.
|Yes bromeliad's can give you a kick of color, just check out this Miami median.|
|Another amazing little landscape using the wall color & lighting as well...kudos to the designer!|
|This lantana 'confetti' is an all-in-one knock |
out of color...just add purple, lol.
|Alternanthera 'red threads' in my front yard|
before mulch. That will be for another post to come.
|In the middle is a Jamaican croton 'tricolor' and blue daze around the outside.|
|Yellow, magenta, white and purple set this landscape off in Weston, FL.|
|Magenta penta's and caladium 'moonlight' is sure to impress.|
|I just love this plant called irsine/bloodleaf, I have|
used it on three of our latest landscapes!
|Now put the bloodleaf with this incredible looking|
sedum and you've got a striking pair!
|Chartreuse coleus, purple Persian shield and red/green coleus.|
|My jaw hit the floor when I saw this tradeshow exhibit in Asia...talk about creative!|
Wish I knew who to give credit to for this...anyone know?
|What a happy looking front yard saying "welcome home"!|
Wishing you all a very happy Labor Day, so enjoy your day off y'all!
Happy Gardening and Best Wishes,
