Plants, like people, often seem better because of the virtues of others.
I recently admired a beautifully planted curbside garden in full sun with a lovely color palette.
Most flower gardeners enjoy sequences of bloom in their beds.
Color combinations can make plant neighbors “pop” and show us that more of the one thing is not always better.
Like a little black dress, some plants are classics and never go out of style.
My formula when choosing plants for my garden: focus on my three favorite colors, plus or minus white.
There are over 900 species of salvias, and it is the largest genus in the mint family.
In Autumn, not only do the colors in the garden seem richer and more mellow, but textures also assume a more dominant role in plantings.
Common garden sage, Salvia officinalis, is a staple in the herb garden and a plant for all seasons.
