The Vernon Geranium Nursery

Colour themed plant collections


When we see a garden with borders that are beautifully colour coordinated it really stops us in our tracks and can make a real design statement. For example, choosing plants with white or cream flowers and variegated foliage can brighten up a shady part of the garden. Vibrant reds and oranges give a feeling of warmth and can be great mood-lifters, whilst white flowers at the bottom of the garden, can make your garden appear longer. Blues and mauves lend a calming influence to gardens - ideal if you lead a busy life and love the idea of a peaceful, garden sanctuary to escape the everyday hustle and bustle.

The Vernon Ladies have been busy compiling a selection of colour themed plant collections, varieties we've grown and loved in our gardens - including many favourites as well as a few new varieties to help you get started in creating your new colour themed displays. There are many more plants online to choose from - but these will hopefully give you some inspiration.

If you prefer a riot of every flower colour imaginable - then why not pick a variety from every single one of our collections. Mingling mauves and whites amongst your usual bright colours can make them appear even more vibrant.
