Garden Design using the soft colour palette

/, Flowers/Garden Design using the soft colour palette

Even though it is increasingly popular to have vibrant reds and oranges in your planting scheme, take a look at these photos.

The softest of pink Roses, with interesting companion planting.

Blue and purple compliment the pink blush of the Rose with Phlox, Campanula, Forget-Me-Not and Irises.

Plus the white of Digitalis and Aquilgea with the frothy white Ammi Majus freshen clean up the palette.

Then to round the colour scheme off there is pink Persicaria bistorta Superba and Thalictrum, all floating on a body of green foliage.

This is definitely a mid summer garden. You could have Tulips and Purple Sensation Alliums for the earlier months and then move on into late Summer with Dahlias and Asters.

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.
