In front of the house, I try to keep it bold and neater. Color scheme is orange, purple, yellow with pops of silver and dark foliage. Limelight hydrangeas, peonies and a few delphiniums provide height. Spring brings tulips, cushion spurge, and edgers (snow-in-summer, rock cress and veronica georgia blue). Summer blooms include lupines, victor reiter geraniums, variegated loosestrife, cheyenne spirit coneflowers and black-eyed susans. Purple emperor sedum, asters and mums close out the season in the fall.
