Planning Color in the Garden
Use the Color Wheel to Help Plan You Garden
Complementary harmony - using colors directly across the wheel from each other;
i.e. purples and yellows or reds and blues.
Split complementary harmony - using a primary color with the colors on either side of its opposite, i.e. yellows with blues and reds.
Analogous harmony - using three colors in a row on the color wheel; i.e. yellows, golds, oranges or different shades of blues, purples and red.
One of the prettiest combinations using the color wheel is an analogous design using a complementary color as your accent, such as lavenders, purples, pinks with the accent of yellow. Draw your own wheel and color in the various shades of the primary colors and you will find the color scheme that is perfect for your gardening taste.
