Color Wheel Chart


purd


A color wheel chart can tell you how colors relate to each other, which ones might work together and which ones probably won’t.


But use it with caution, particularly in decorating and design – there’s more to the color mixing wheel than mixing primary colors.


You’ll find all the basics in these color theory articles!

artist color mixing chart with secondary and tertiary colors



The artist’s  color wheel is the color mixing chart we all learn at school.

If you have, over the years, looked at gardens where there is a profusion of color with spring-flowering bulbs and wished for the same showstopping display in your garden, then now is the time to think about planting spring-flowering bulbs.

I had been remiss some years and did not plant certain bulbs or as many as I should have, and then came spring, and I had regrets. So, this fall, make time for spring color in your garden and plant fall bulbs in the perennial bed and beneath trees and shrubs. If space is a problem, fall bulbs can be planted in pots, containers and window boxes, and even be forced to bloom indoors.

Not all bulbs are the same. That is, some fall bulbs work as perennials, others are considered annuals. Daffodils and scilla are reliable as perennials. Tulips and hyacinths have become

Basic Design Principles – Using Color in the Garden

Posted on

When you get right down to it gardens are really about color. That color can come from flowers, foliage, bark, pottery, furniture, fences and even artwork, but in the end it is all about color. Our gardens are meant to enhance our lives and to make our homes look better from the curb. Color can be soothing or exciting, it can be a riot or a river, it can be front and center or something much more subtle, but whatever our choices, color is the goal.
