Under all the layers of weeds, there were hibiscus plants; peonies; lavender bushes, which ALWAYS had died on me; two apple trees (I left behind fruit tree saplings that I had nurtured for a year); gorgeous hydrangeas, which I had been layering in our old home to create more plants; hostas; coneflowers, which I’ve always wanted; a smokebush, (left) which I had just read about in a magazine and wanted to try; and lamb's ear, which is truly growing like a weed. My heart is so full of plants!
How would you describe this color palette?
There are many plants with deep purple foliage, balanced with a healthy dose of yellow, lime green, and deep green. When in bloom, the garden is a riot of purples and pinks, peaches and apricots. Blue is banned and before long red will be too.
If I could have my druthers, the garden would only bloom in the lightest feminine shades of blush pinks and apricots and fiery deep oranges and lush deep aubergine. Perhaps next year...
