Reds, oranges and yellows are colours of passion and vibrancy that command our attention in the garden in late Summer or early Autumn. Some gardeners are anxious about using them in the garden; their strength can be off-putting. Use them to make a statement in your garden through the tulip, rose, red hot poker, lily, gerbera, poppy or montbretia plants. They work very well when offset with green foliage in your borders. In Winter red can create a magical feel in a frosty setting; it can brighten a Summer’s day but remember to use it sparingly for best results.
