I started off very much like you, but now mine's array of colour like the explosion in a paint factory look, my garden is quite hard to tame but seems to take on its own colours with the seasons.
in the late Spring there are pale colours, pinks, lilac and blues. That is from Foxgloves, giant Echiums and Delphiniums.Then later the hot colours. That's from Helenium, rudbeckia, sea holly, and some bright annuals to fill in spaces,
I never plan a colour scheme but I know lots of people do. If it grows for me, then that's the plant for me. It's a battle to grow anything up here so I'm grateful for any, and I just love love a bright gawdy pink next to a bright orange!
This is June.
These are end of September
