One small, ornamental tree and a flowering shrub give this island bed year-round character. The surrounding perennials and groundcovers add seasonal splashes of color and texture. Plants have been chosen for their soft, delicate, and warm appearances. The color palette emphasizes pink and yellow with a touch of blue. Three optional varieties of bulbs provide a cheerful welcome to spring. The plants in this garden bloom best in full sun but will tolerate a bit of shade.
