Using color in an annual or perennial flower garden is a really nice way to make it pop. There are so many different ways you can use color, you can have complementary colors, you can have contrasting colors, you can use every color in the rainbow, just a couple colors or even one color.
In this garden, they featured blue flowers and white flowers. It's beautiful; it looks very simple and clean.
It allows you to try a lot of colors and different shades within those two color groups. We have a tall liatris for example, a beautiful white flower, next to a beautiful blue larkspur with that baby blue color. There are some ageratum around the edge, with more of a purplish kind of color to them, right next to the white alyssums. And you can go on and on with these different colors to compliment and play off of each other.
Over there we even have some balloon flowers which are really beautiful. They come in white, pink and blue.
Or you can go with all of one color, like a white garden, sometimes called a moon garden. This one has white lilies, white hydrangeas, white phlox, white baby’s breath... everything is white in there. When the moon is full, it all glows. It's so cool. It's nice to just see how many different kinds of flowers you can get, all in the same shade.
