Color Gardens: Beautiful Perennial Combinations from Spring through Frost

In this presentation from designer Maria von Brincken, you’ll learn “color pairing”, the first step to create a stunning combination. Graphics will introduce color theory and texture as design tools that are easy to use to create your own beautiful combinations in seasonal sequence. Examples of both sunny and shady flower combinations blooming from spring through fall can be used right away. Or inspire you to create your own. Examples are from gardens in New England, the US, and abroad. A digital handout with details of the plant combinations shown will be made available.
