    I must admit I always tune out when color-theory talk starts up. But I do like this color combo and lean more toward deeper, intense color than pastels myself. Thanks for showing this garden, Susan.


    Great article is there any chance I can take it and copy it onto my own blog


    I'm trying to be more deliberate in my use of color. The pastel and split schemes are appealing, though I don't think I would use a scheme of dark shades.

    Thank you so much for the great color theory review and links. I really enjoyed it and am saving your post to refer to later. Happy Gardening! Spring is nearly here : )

    While I find this part of color theory useful, it is only part of the story. There are three aspects of color (really 4)that are important. This addresses hue but not intensity and value. It also doesn't address the issue of warm or cool undertones which can render color selections literally psychedelic if a designer isn't careful. All of this said, the plants in this garden were exceptionally well done!
