Like hosta rings around trees, yew, juniper, mugo pine, spirea and daylilies are often overused as foundation plantings. They are all nice plants that can be used in combination with other plants to create beautiful landscapes, full of varied but unified colors and textures. However, if a landscape designer comes to your home for a consultation and says, We will just put a row of yews along this side, a bunch of spirea and daylilies on that side, a big sprawling juniper here, and rings of hostas around all the trees, simply thank them for their time and call the next landscape designer on the list. Most likely, if you are considering spending money on a new landscape, you are hoping for actual curb appeal, not just yawns from passersby.
Complementary colors are colors that are opposite one other on the color wheel, such as orange and purple. Then there are the harmonious analogous color schemes, which are found next to each other, like purple and blue. In a blue and purple flower garden color scheme, for instance, you could mix plants like: Delphinium, Salvia, Lavender, False indigo, Campanula, Blue colored foliage or grasses.
