Longwood Gardens, in Kennett Square, Pa addressed this dilemma in their 600 foot long ‘Flower Garden Walk’.
Along this broad brick walk is a mix of annual and perennial flowers, spring bulbs, woody shrubs and ornamental grasses showcasing one individual color followed by another.
As you stroll, you experience the full impact of each color of the rainbow, one at a time.
At the start is a grand sweep of lavender, purple and blue
Ultimately ending in white.
This fun approach can be used in any garden –
a long curving flower bed can begin with white wax begonias extending through pink ones and ending with red begonias.
