|I didn't plan it, but dark purple clustered bell flower, Campanula glomerata, and the magenta never planted wildflower, Winecup (also called Prairie Rose or Callirhoe involucrata) have an attractive color combination.
|Yellow centers of Shasta Daisies match the Golden Yarrow.
What interesting color combinations are found in the garden. A few are planned. Many are not.
I imagine many avid gardeners spend the winter months thinking and planning plant combinations. They would have to bloom at the same time, of course. And then it would be good for the colors to coordinate or contrast.
|Here Winecup, Callirhoe involucrata, intermingles with a bright yellow sedum.
|Burgundy barberry bush contrasts with yellow sedum bloom.
|Honeysuckle and clematis crawl on an arbor.
|A classic complementary combo: Red roses with green foliage.
|The delicate Heritage Rose.
|Pink Missouri Primrose, Oenothera speciosa, and the grey foliage of Artemisia ludoviciana ‘Silver Queen’ make a striking combination.
|Penstemon digitalis 'Husker Red' was a gift from a friend's garden and has settled in nicely.
|A nice combination and purely accidental.
|An early Sunday morning trip to the vegetable garden found lettuce, onions, strawberries and rhubarb.
|A robin is nesting on the light on our front porch and the eggs have hatched.
|Sigh. This is okay. Cinco and Mayo may eat the leaves of the water sprouts but I'm having trouble explaining that they may NOT eat the leaves of my rose bushes.
