The colors in the above image might seem unnatural or otherworldly, but flowers that grow and bloom among us represent all the colors you see here.
One approach to garden and landscape design is to anticipate the effects of color. But color should not be isolated from other aspects of the design. Always plan for color in relation to other commanding aspects, such as form, texture and size. Remember, too, that color in combination produces more and different color, so be sure to consider the placement of color, not merely in relation to other plants, but also to objects such as walls, stones, and fences.
Since flowering plants don't all bloom at exactly the same time, it is important to plan sequential blooming into your garden design. This way your home or business will be colorful throughout the summer, or even the entire year. You can even plan different color moods to match the changing seasons, or layer your garden such that certain flowers will bloom at night for those very magical "moon garden" parties in the summertime when evening temperatures are just right.
