Eye-pleasing plant combinations can be based on something as simple as the contrast between a warm color and a cool one. In this vignette from Maxine Rowan’s garden in Eugene, Oregon, the coral pastels of a Dr. Salter’s Hybrid Alstroemeria seem more vibrant alongside the blue spikes of Veronica ‘Sunny Borders Blue’.
Welcome to the Fine Gardening Garden Photo of the Day blog! Every weekday we post a new photo of a great garden, a spectacular plant, a stunning plant combination, or any number of other subjects. Think of it as your morning jolt of green.
If you think you have a photo that we should share on the Garden Photo of the day, email us. Send hi-res images to [email protected] with GPOD in the subject line. We’ll only respond if we plan to use your photo.
