Color in Your Perennial Garden

In the past couple weeks, we’ve blogged about the characteristics of different color schemes, as well as some of theĀ intricaciesĀ of garden design. The following is a video that I found on YouTube that aims to tie the two themes together. It’s titled “How to Design a Perennial Garden : Color Schemes in a Perennial Garden.”

In the feature, produced by, the host shows how different colored daylillies can work to compliment each other in a flower bed.

For example, if you’ve been growing beautiful, bright red lillies, you may lose some of the color’s dramatic effect when placed with other similar flowers. However, if you place it next to say an orange lilly, it’s color becomes that much more distinct.
