Plan and Plant for Seasonal Interest in the Garden
Celebrate the change of seasons with changing colors and textures in the garden.
Include a variety of spring blooming perennials like hellebores that have multiple seasons of interest with evergreen leaves and interesting blooms. Or those with multiple benefits such as spring blooming lungwort with attractive flowers, interesting foliage and hummingbird appeal.
Include ornamental grasses that provide year-round texture with their fine foliage and persistent seedheads.
And leave a few seedheads for fall and winter interest.
A bit more information: Use the artist color wheel to help when planning your garden. Plant complementary colors like green and red or blue and orange together to create an eye-catching combination. These are found across from each other on the color wheel. Use adjacent colors on the wheel for a more harmonious feel.
