Nothing has a bigger impact in the landscape than annual color! There’s something about the bright vibrant pink, yellow, red and orange blooms that gives the landscape that extra “pop”. Planting combinations of bright colorful annuals mixed in with existing dark green foliage adds outstanding beauty even to the most mundane shrub arrangements. Be sure to choose colors and textures that will compliment a particular element in the landscape such as patios, porches and entryways. Selecting different flower combinations for each season will help spice up your landscape and bring with it a new personality each and every season. And don’t forget to select the right plant for the right location, make sure that your annuals are getting the right amount of sun exposure so that they can thrive and transform your landscape into a stand out.
