Choosing a Colorful Garden


Choose variegated plants.

Variegated plants are a great way to add color without adding a lot of flowers. Variegated plants are defined as plants that have irregularly-formed patches of different colors, such as the variegated hostas and ferns in the picture below. The most common cause of variegation is mutation in the plant’s genes.

Variegated plants can be more fragile than their non-variegated counterparts because they have less chlorophyll, which makes them more susceptible to sun damage or heat stress.

Plant perennials with many colors.

Perennials are long-lived plants that come back year after year. They provide color not just in spring, but also summer and fall!

While the blossoms of annuals last only one season, perennials have flowers that return each season and often have attractive foliage as well. Perennials are great for filling in the gaps between annuals and trees because they bloom at different times of the year when there might not be much else available for you to add color to your garden during those times.

Choose flowers that have a complementary color scheme.

Color is an important part of any garden, no matter its size or style. The colors you choose for your garden will depend on what kind of effect you want to achieve.

If you want a splashy display that really stands out in the landscape, then choose flowers with strong colors and intense hues. However, if you prefer a more subtle look and feel, then opt for lighter colors that complement each other well. It’s also important to consider how different colors appear under different lighting conditions: warm light casts yellow tones onto objects; cool light makes them appear closer in color temperature (think of looking at something through colored glass).

It can be difficult to know where to begin when choosing garden plants because there are so many choices available these days! Luckily there are easy ways to ensure that this process goes smoothly by following some tips below:

Plant flowers in groups of one, two or three colors instead of mixing them up.

This tip is really just common sense, but it’s also one of the easiest ways to add some color to your garden. Instead of planting flowers in a haphazard manner that mixes up all the different colors you’re using, plant them in groups of one, two or three different colors. This will help create a more cohesive look and make your garden stand out from all the others around it.

Use a garden planner to help you visualize the colors.

Sometimes it’s hard to visualize the colors of your garden. If so, use a garden planner to help you visualize the colors.

A garden planner is a tool that helps you visualize the colors in your garden. It can also help you visualize the colors in your garden.

Select the right plant for sun or shade.

Of course, if you’re hoping to add some color to your garden, the shade is going to be a better option. If you’ve got a shady spot that’s perfect for some color, go ahead and plant those colorful flowers. The same goes for fragrant plants: if you’re looking for scented blossoms in your yard or garden, consider choosing fragrant varieties that thrive under shady conditions.

If you’re out of luck on both counts—if there isn’t much shade near where you want to add new plants and there aren’t many fragrant varieties available—then consider spiky plants instead! Spiky foliage doesn’t quite have the same pleasing appearance as other options (like flowers or ferns), but it adds an element of interest while still letting plenty of sunlight through so that photosynthesis can continue happening as normal.

Use a container with a variety of colors to fill in spaces, or add height and interest to your garden.

You can use containers to add color, height and interest. The possibilities are endless. You may choose to plant container gardens with a variety of colors or only one or two colors to create an accent in your garden. For example, if you are planting trees and shrubs that have green leaves but want some color in your landscape, consider using red flowers in a container.

Use the following tips when selecting plants for your containers:

  • Use three distinct sizes of containers (small, medium and large). This will help break up the design and make it more interesting to look at rather than having all pots be the same size from one end of your yard to another.
  • Put small pots on top of larger ones so that they don’t get lost among all those other plants that might be taller than them!

Remember that animals and insects are attracted to certain colors and will fight other pests for them.

When it comes to color, remember that animals and insects are attracted to certain colors and will fight other pests for them. Some insects are attracted to yellow and orange, which are the warning colors of many poisonous plants. You may want to avoid using these colors when you’re trying to attract butterflies or bees.

If you’re looking for a place in your garden where insects congregate, try planting a few milkweed plants. The sap from milkweeds contains chemicals that help monarch caterpillars make their chrysalises resistant to predators’ attacks–and these same chemicals attract monarchs themselves!

When you plan your garden ahead of time you’ll have fewer surprises and be happier with the results.

You can plan ahead of time to have a garden that is beautiful and colorful. You can make a garden plan with a garden planner.
