This stylish border features a sophisticated color palette. The perennials in the design, chosen for their long season of bloom, offer flowers in violet-blue and yellow shades. Evergreen shrubs in silver-blue and bright chartreuse-gold keep the color scheme going year-round. Site the garden along a property line, where it will impart a sense of enclosure to your yard without blocking the view; or plant it against a fence or wall. The three types of bulbs at the bottom of the list may be added to the garden, if you like, for early spring color. The plants in this garden need a sunny exposure.
