There are many plants I grow purely for the joy of their colourful blooms. I love colour, in all shades, and am quite happy to have a riotous mix in my crazy garden. Pops of colour add drama, surprise, and exuberance to the garden. A few brilliant zinnias in a pot, a lush begonia bloom or a sweet shrub rose can add glorious pink. The vibrant red and golden mix of a blanket flower can’t help but catch your eye. The hollyhock in sleek, elegant black enriches and enchants. A drift of loosestrife in butter yellow, a simple ‘ditch lily’ in juicy orange, a spunky poppy or sunny rudbeckia, all build on the rainbow of the garden!
