TOP 3 PLANTS TO ADD SUMMER COLOR TO YOUR GARDEN

The weather in California is mostly worm and you are always told that the worst time to plant is in the summer.  This is due to the fact that the weather is so hot that there is a high likely hood that the plants you plant in the summer may not fare well.  So what you do then?  Enjoy the colors of summer.  You can plant the rest of the year to have color within each season.

Remember that you are only limited by your imagination and that these 3 plants I am sharing are only a sniped of the vast variety of plants that are available to choose from.  Just make sure that with any plant that you put it in an area where it will have room to mature and grow and get the right amount of light that it needs.  For example a plant that gets 5' tall should be planted to have a 5' diameter space of room go grow.

TOP 3 PLANTS TO ADD SPRING COLOR TO YOUR GARDEN

When designing landscapes I like to plant for each season.  This means that I design so that every season there is some sort of color in the landscapes.  Doing this allows for a more colorful experience.  It also gives the local beneficial wildlife food to each season after season.

Remember that you are only limited by your imagination!  There is not one right color for your garden other than the color you fancy most.  You have endless drought tolerant color choices to choose from.  In this video I share with you the top 3 plants that bloom in the spring.

TOP 3 PLANTS TO ADD WINTER COLOR TO YOUR GARDEN

When I design landscapes I like to think about the colors I am adding to the garden.  I try to make design such that each season there is some sort of flower color.  You really can create a garden filled with different flowers, where not all of the flowers bloom in one season.

In this video I share with you 3 plants that you should consider adding to the garden if you want color in the winter.  These plants are very drought tolerant, require minimal maintenance and don't need to be watered much after establishment period.

Remember that in gardening you are only limited by your imagination and it is far easier to add color to your landscape with flowers.  If you decided in a few years that you don't like that color then you can easily replace that plant in comparison to painting your house some funky color.
