Red Garden

Category: Garden Designs | Posted: Sat May 10, 2008 11:42 am

After much contemplation I decided to use red as the main color for a bed in front of our house. Along with two bright red double Knock Outs, I used 2 red verbenas, 2 red (yes red) dianthus and 5 English boxwoods to define the border and provide winter interest. There are large shrubs (not sure of variety) behind this border and grass in front. I used red to pick up on the brick of the house and to provide colorful interst from the street. I have two large white containers on the stoop with red caladiums and begonias. Sounds like a lot of red but I decided that the one color with a lot of plant variety would have more punch than a mixture since this is a small bed.
