Changing the color scheme helps create a mood of joy and peace in the garden
A well-groomed and picturesque section of the garden, visible from the windows of a country house, always pleases. Juicy, strong, wild flowering of plants creates and cheers up. Among ornamental plants, annuals attract attention with abundant and long flowering. Even if perennials predominate in the flower garden, then it is difficult to do without annuals. Indeed, many of them are amazingly beautiful, have a unique aroma, bright colors. Annuals are popular all over the world, in all climatic zones. Most of them bloom continuously throughout the summer, creating the basis of the color scheme and decorating the garden.
A dense planting of annuals in flower beds guarantees flowering until the very fall - the flowering of bright diverse daisies, space with a pale pink and daring red color scheme, a fluffy snow-white gypsophila bush between thickets of dahlias, white, pink and red roses. A group of needle-like, bright pink dahlias that draw attention to themselves are the dominant among this variety.
Somewhat apart, to the side, a beautiful mixed bloom is formed by red-violet cellosia, pink airy cleoma and perennial blue and pale blue salvia. Annuals are widely used to decorate the front side of the plots - all summer until late autumn. Good are the snow-white panicles of alyssum along the edge of the flower bed, which includes lemon-yellow low marigolds, pink geraniums, zinnias of various shades and tall bright yellow marigolds. The flower garden will be decorated with small fir-trees and evergreen shrubs - spines, rhododendrons, which form a cascading garden. Create a small garden with mixed flowers. An adorable look, continuous color change is formed from such annuals as massive castor oil plants, leguminous plants near the walking path.The chestnut and red colors of the barberry dominate the flower garden and create a dark color scheme among the surrounding greenery. Pink verbena in the foreground and yellow-orange calendula add contrast to the leaves and continuous flowering.
Instead of boring, dull and shapeless plantings, create a vibrant flower garden with contrasting plant textures and harmonious combinations of green leaf shapes. For example, legumes form the backdrop and cover a rough hedge or wall. Light daphne leaves and cleoma create a beautiful textured backdrop for amazing vines. The broad leaves of the cannes and their bold orange or red blooms show themselves luxuriously in areas that are lighted and sheltered from the wind. They are especially beautiful against the background of ground cover plants. Spectacular silvery masses of the groundwort (cineraria), recently gardeners willingly cultivate it because of the beautiful flowers of various shapes and colors. And next to it, white or pink cleomas create a shining picture. Yellow tagetes and purple verbena, planted side by side, create an interesting color scheme. Among annuals, pay special attention to asters.These are some of the most beloved colors. They bloom until frost. There are a huge number of very different varieties of asters. The inflorescences of some resemble peonies in shape, others - roses, and others - chrysanthemums. And what a variety of colors and shades they have!
Owners of wooden or plastered houses need interesting decorations and disguises for architectural flaws. This role is successfully fulfilled by tall panicles of poppy, chamomile, sweet pea, purple morning glory, nasturtium, purple coneflower and many other flowers. For this, climbing, climbing and ampelous plants are also used. They form a decorative vertical, freely placed on the wall, and act as a curtain of bluish and light green leaves along the wall. For vertical gardening, easily grown vines are widely used - maiden grapes, honeysuckle, unsurpassed clematis, climbing roses, actinidia, Chinese magnolia vine and others. Use climbing and high-growing plants as independent decorative elements on all kinds of supports.
In a shady garden, you can create an interesting area in all respects by choosing the appropriate plants and colors. Here is a good place for ferns, rhododendron, hosts, ayuga, anemone, aquilegia, aruncus, aster, campanula, clefthoof and many other shade-loving perennials. Imagine an array of swamp ferns among neat patches of moss that retain their pillow-like green curtains all year round. In shady places, surround old trees with evergreen dwarf bushes of clefthoof, heuchera, tiarella and other plants that have a shallow root system and are easy to care for. Japanese and Siberian irises blooming in summer will decorate a similar site. Subulate phloxes and bright red lobelia provide a catchy color scheme from early spring until frost. Decorate the wetland near the reservoir with moisture-loving plants.The key to success is using the red oriental poppy. A dark pink and bright white rugosa rose grows well here, which blooms all summer, until the time when a clump of daylilies next to the poppy also begins to show their color. Rudbeckia also occupies a lot of space here.
Caring for such landings is easy. They only require an hour a week to clean and water every other week during dry periods. Feed them with organic or complex mineral fertilizers once in the spring. In autumn, to protect them from the winter cold, it is advisable to cover them with mulch from tree bark, compost, straw or any available material. Whichever color is used in the garden always draws special attention to the color white. In the evening, among the greenery, together with the silvery tones, this shade visually reduces the heat. The light effect is created by various annuals and perennials.
A rainbow of flowers in the garden is designed to create a bright, joyful mood in the spring, an atmosphere of calmness in summer and autumn.
