Garden Color

Better in blue, wonderful in white, radiant in red: Color is as personal to a gardener as a favorite plant. Whatever color you love, there are plants and garden designs to make your landscape the most beautiful on the block. Start with your most-beloved color and pick one of our slideshows that spotlight masterful flowers. Neutral white flowers are a perfect way to brighten a dark corner. Reds and oranges, on the other hand, add jazz and excitement to the garden. Find great flowers in both these tones, plus 13 fantastic combinations of these cheerful hues. While red and orange are energetic tones, blue is coolly beautiful in the garden, and there are fantastic flowers in this sought-after garden hue, as well as purple and pink combos. Lavender, yellow, and pink flowers are also beautiful with fantastic shades, from pastel to bright, that can integrate easily into gardens from cottage to contemporary. Lest we forget, green and silver can supply stunning color variety in the garden, particularly in shady spots that rely on texture and foliage plants. Here's a selection that look good with virtually any other plant.
