What color palette is effective for my garden?

The Monochromatic Garden

One of the most effective garden types is the monochromatic garden. Using different shades of a single color can really look striking. Try an all blue, red or yellow color palette. For contrast, try adding non-blooming plants with silver or white foliage to the planting beds. These foliage plants don't take away from the overall impact. Instead, they actually enhance the single colors, making them clearer and more intense!
