We don’t have to settle for plain old terra cotta anymore. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I love the look of natural clay pots or believable-looking (plastic) fakes. However, moving towards the pure rainbow hues of the spectrum can give your garden some colour pizzazz. This bright blue container increases the impact of the blue love in a mist flowers in the foreground. Now that manufacturers are creating so many garden containers in varied colours, we can easily maximize our favourite colour choices in our garden arrangements.
This pairing of blue and blue is a real knockout. Of course, in my view, there is almost nothing better than a blue pot in the garden. The blue makes a perfect contrast to the garden’s green, while still being an analogous colour. Analogous colours sit next to each other on the colour spectrum, naturally blending together, while also giving just enough contrast. And it’s that bit of contrast that makes a garden interesting and noteworthy. Try a coloured pot somewhere in your garden, and pair it with one of your favourite garden flowers. The two often make an impact that’s greater than the sum of its parts.
