Choose low need plants that can sustain themselves without much intervention. Succulents, alpine plants, some grasses and spurge are excellent choices. The feel that you are trying to achieve is important, but so are plant needs. Use plants that have similar requirements in the small space for best results. An example might be a niche planting of clumping bamboo with containers of succulents as accents in a patio setting. The choices are endless, but the best pocket garden will have complimentary textures and plant needs.
Pastel colors are soft and light tones of pink, purple, blue, green, orange and yellow. In marketing, we often see pastel colors used for baby stuff because these colors remind us of softness, sweetness and security. At 3 a.m. when the baby is fussy and fighting sleep, it will be much easier to lull him or her back to sleep surrounded by soft colors and lights. Pastel colors also adorn everything around Easter time to celebrate the start of spring. After a dreary, cold winter, the light pinks, blues, yellows and lavenders of spring decorations gently bring us out of our winter slumbers.
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.
Lavender and pink can be used together for color blocking, or pinks and reds. White is also a color that can be used for a dramatic color blocking effect. Color blocking in the garden with white might include: Lilies, Dusty miller, Artemisia, Pampas grass, Spirea, Astilbe, Plants will variegated foliage.
