A mixed bag
My favorite color all year round is yellow. I love pinks and purples with my yellow daffodils in the spring. I love pinks and reds with my yellow daisies and black-eyed Susans in the summer, and I love yellow mums and pansies in the fall. In the vegetable garden, I love yellow tomatoes and yellow squash.

My favorite color combination in the garden is purple and green. The two colors are an amazing contrast.

A little extra
I love purple and yellow with splashes of red. I also like the different shades and textures of foliage, and always keep that in mind when selecting my flowers each spring.

My favorite are red, white, and blue petunias and pansies in a beautiful patriotic garden. I think
since September 11, 2001, Americans really realize what an important and special place we live in.

My favorite color combination is red with white.
We start with red and white tulips in the spring, then have early lilies and dianthus, mixed with a little yellow. Summer and fall include phlox, carnations, coneflowers, and mums. We do have other colors splashed in, but these seem to be most noticed by guests.

I love the combination of purple coneflower,
yellow coreopsis, and white alliums. They're easy to grow, and they all self seed and are great cut flowers.
