What's New and In Bloom

"Why do two colors, put one next to the other, sing? Can one really explain this? No.  Just as one can never learn how to paint."          Pablo Picasso

When putting your garden plan together it seems like a painting. You always have to keep in mind moisture, light exposure, soil conditions, size, and the fun part, what colors will go with what. We've got quite an array of new plants this year with colors throughout the spectrum. Here are a few that are in bloom at the moment.
