In gardening, there are four factors that plants contribute to make your garden beautiful and natural but most often they are ignored by gardeners either intentionally or without their knowing it. These are the color, shape; form and perfume exude by the plants you are growing. But of these four factors, the most common and crucial subject in the garden is the color. Just like your homeís decorations, have you approved or are you comfortable with a mixture of all the different types of colors like green, red, blue, violet, yellow and orange painted in your wall? It is definite that you will raise a howl of protest in such color combinations; the same is true with plants in your garden, as it would be very pleasing to the eyes if you would group those with the same colors, height, shapes or even the perfume so that you would appreciate more their natural beauty.
And what is the reason why most of the gardeners fall into these same inconsistencies in colors? It is forgetfulness that the rules on color combination that they were ignored in the garden. Color combination is also good as in applying them to your house exterior and interior colors; the rule applies both to natural and man made decorations as well. While these rules on color combinations are easily observed in our homes or personal choices, the rules are difficult to apply in gardening as there are other factors brought by the environment like the blue sky during summer and so different climate during winter.
While winter skies are more predictable, flowers during this season are less brightly than in summer months and there are numerous plants that also flower during winter months where proper planning could result to a more harmonious display of grouping of those plants. There is no sufficient reason to forget the consideration of colors in your garden if you do the proper planning of the plants you would like to grow and make a research and find out the color of the flower of the plant before you start planting it. That is the best way to group them as early as you prepare the bedding or even before seeding time for purposes of easy identification later on.
In the realm of nature, colors do not clash or contradict with each other and this is believed that this is due to the work of insects, birds and other animals that do the pollinating of plants during the year round as they are attracted to yellow colors which bloom during springtime and these plants that bloom in yellow take center stage in late March and early April. This yellow color is a permanent fixture both in your garden and the countryside. Imagine how beautifully draped in yellow your garden on one side and green on the other side, a color combination which is not only pleasant to look at but everything seems to be in a naturally arrayed environment that rejuvenates your mind from the stress and tension of everyday life. This is the same feeling when you decorate your homes in accordance with the color combination that you were adapted to.
