Remember the dreary rain bedraggled annual flower composition from an earlier blog? In the photo below the nasturtiums saved the day adding cheerful orange and yellow and its pale green leaves to brighten the somber composition of rust coleus and purple petunias. In the revised arrangement above, I’ve tucked in the low growing yellow marigolds and the mid-range height orange (I believe they are a zinnia hybrid)into the containers on each side. Now the color harmony of purple, rust, orange, yelllow and pale green presents a cheery vista! It’s fun to try different combinations and simple to fix when it turns out not to please you. In this case the color wheel led me to the solution.
