One of the most appealing things about a garden and landscape is the vast array of colors. When it comes to color in the garden, we most often think of flowers. However, flowers blossom and then fade, their color is fleeting. If you really want to plan for color, think beyond the blossom.
When it comes to designing a garden, there is much more to it than simply selecting the plants. Although the selection process can be daunting, one of the best ways to approach your garden design is to think in terms of plant form and function, rather than specific plants.
