I am delighted that many of you are avid gardeners including in southern zones, since I am new to gardening in a tropical zone. I am very picky when it comes to color in the garden. I love a garden that is largely green with a palette of white, pink, and blue. I love black in the garden as well. I am not drawn to yellow, orange, purple, or red in general. I use the same colors in my garden that I do in my house, and feel your garden and home should work together.
I love blue and white in the garden in the form of blue and white Chinese garden stools, fishbowls, planters, and ginger jars. As you may recall, at my front entrance I have a pair of blue and white Chinese garden stools, a pair of blue and white fishbowls, and a blue and white umbrella stand with navy and white striped umbrellas. I mentioned a while back that I planned to plant the beds on either side approaching the front door with agapanthus. I happened upon "Twister" and fell in love. A white agapanthus with lovely blue throats. So perfect. I love the idea of blue and white plants in the garden - I must find more now!
I plan on ordering them today. Everything I have planted so far is doing beautifully - foxtail ferns, African iris, bromeliads, gardenias, eugenia, elephant ears, duranta, brugmansias, succulents, and palms. Still on my list are camellias.
