Analogous Color Container Garden

Analogous Color Container Garden 

Full Sun Project
Time: 30 Minutes

Analogous colors are colors that are close to each other on the color wheel, such as red/orange/yellow or magenta/purple/blue (which is what we've done in our container here). Analogous color schemes are harmonious, pleasing to the eye and can often be found in nature - so it's easy to create this color story with flowers! When choosing your own analogous colors, just do an Internet search for a color wheel to use as your guide when planning your colors and plants. As always, use the thriller/filler/spiller method when selecting plants and group plants together that like the same amount of sunlight and water.
