Lately, when we’re outdoors, the colors are very subdued, the temperatures are low, and it’s easy to spot our stolid companions. Usually, it’s just that though, a passing appreciation for the comfort and stability that these ordinary evergreens bring. Now, imagine seeing the addition of vibrant chartreuse or shocking blue. Suddenly the garden feels playful again, rich with color, interest, and depth!
Colorful evergreens are a delight to see in the winter, but they also skyrocket the number of interesting companion plantings you can make during the growing season! (And who isn’t doing a little scheming about their garden during the winter?) Rely on golds, chartreuses, and blues to be the beautiful backbone to your flower-filled plantings and a whole new world of possibility opens up.
