Until today, I have chosen to have every blooming thing in our front yard garden be purple-ish or white (with a tiny bit of hot pink skullcap and one little red rose). The yellow-orange flower world has just seemed too hot to explore, although I’ve known it would provide good contrast with all the purple.
In anticipation of cooler temperatures (a month or more away, I know) and a cooler house color, I took my first baby step today, buying this “Orange Master” Dwarf Pomegranate (Punica granatum). We had an ugly blank spot with some exposed woody old rosemary roots, which are still ugly and exposed, but I think this big fleur-de-lis pot with the silver ponyfoot surrounding the dwarf pomegranate is a nice filler and distraction for now.
