To get maximum impact from blues and purples, plant a bright yellow amongst them for contrast. Luscious.
Group whites together with a few very pale blue and darker blues amonst them, again, maximum impact.
I am all for colour in a garden, I'm not fussed on sticking to one or a few shades.
I LOVE this sort of thing
everything goes in my garden. i just have to master the knack of colours that match or contrast but look good. better than a garden filled with junk and rubbish
It's all about balance-just like life really! As Verdun says it's a question of trying things out and if it doesn't work -move 'em! It's often easier to rule out what colours you don't like first and then once you've checked aspect, soil etc, look at pix and see the kind of look you're after and then you can make choices more easily about colour combinations. Sometimes a photo of a room gives you inspiration about the kind of colours you could put together. It doesn't always have to be plants. And of course green ties it all together but many people are frightened of using it!
The colours I really don't like are peach and salmon! Never use them as I always think they look washed out! Yukk
