Round forms, such as boxwood or barberry shrubs, for instance, add definition and stability to a mixed border. A series of mounded forms creates an undulating rhythm. Repeated, narrow verticals also add stability. Alone, an upright arborvitae or a thin cactus looks awkward. Clustered, they appear well-placed. The strong uprights of a fence add a sense of security and completeness.
No matter how beautiful an outdoor space is, it is always the pot or plant bed full of flowers that garners the most praise. The delight that flowers bring goes beyond pretty blossoms and sweet smelling fragrance. Using the metaphor of music, flowers add high pitched, sweet tones to the symphony within a garden. It is their soaring song, with notes of blue, pink, white and more that we all savor.
The plants at the visible edge along a walk, patio, or lawn, can make all the difference in its appearance. Low-growing plants in the front row accentuate the shape of the bed, soften harsh edges, and help draw attention to the taller plants behind.
We love the willingness of gardeners to try new things. This year, we predict continued experimentation with new plants and how they are showcased. Following are three ways you can add some botanical variety to your garden or home.
