The range of blue is enormous, from uplifting summer skies to melancholy mists. Think of the number of mascot flowers that are blue—Texas bluebonnets, California ceanothus, Swiss gentians, English bluebells—this color carries emotional heft.
The combination (above) of the blue spikes of Veronica spicata mingled with yellow Achillea ‘Coronation Gold’ is an example of the way a yellow “throw” creates a sparkle that blue by itself could not. Try pink, cream and silver for the same effect.
This arbor adds intimacy to the garden and also screens the neighbor’s yard. The vertical oak pieces are 12 inches thick, so it’s sturdy and gives the feeling of permanence. Being plant fanatics, we often use pergolas and arbors as armatures for vines and climbing plants. They’re a great way to introduce color, fragrance, and texture—or even an edible landscape on a vertical plane.
Low growing plants in the front row should be full, look good in a line, and not require too much care. If you view a garden bed from a distance, the height of edging plants can be relatively high—around 2 feet. In beds that are viewed up close, the border plants should be lower than 2 feet.
