Seed Grow project are exactly the kind of color I'm talking about.
Bright orange flowers look really fantastic against a backdrop of dark foliage. So do light green ones like Zinnia Green Envy and Bells of Ireland. Right now these are planted against my wood fence because I was planning to trellis them (they're climbers) but now that I've seen the color of this first bloom, I'm thinking of moving them to another location where they can ramble around my Weigela Wine and Roses or my Red Husker Penstemon. I think these bright flowers and pale green leaves would really compliment either of them nicely.
What are your favorite plants to pair for their spectacular contrast?
I'm growing Nasturtium Spitfire for the Grow project. Thanks to Renee's Garden for the seeds.
