Colour that will burn your retinas

/, Flowers/Colour that will burn your retinas

Here is some colour to knock your January socks off!

Penstemons which will flower from early summer all the way to the first frosts, the delicate fronds and flowers of the Silk Tree, Dahlias, the tropical Canna Lillies and the annual Amaranthus. 

Now is the bet time to start planning your perennial beds – there is no rush to go out and buy straight away so you can take your time looking through books (or these days, Google Images!)

Maybe think about a ‘hot’ border this year – passionate and vibrant oranges and reds – they look great especially next to a nice grey summer sky.

About the Author:

In 2006 I formed Glorious Gardens, gathering together skilled practitioners to offer not just design but implementation of these designs and maintenance packages where we could look after the gardens once we had created them. Throughout my career I have designed gardens to inspire people with the heart aching beauty of nature, with shapes, colours, moods and proportions to pleasure the body and calm and delight the mind. I am also an artist who works with colour and abstract shapes and I bring this sensitivity to the 4 dimensions of a garden. I am very good at listening to clients and I’m able to draw out the essence of what a client wants for their outdoor space.
