Plant color vs. house color- breaking the rules?
So, we're redoing our foundation beds. I've studied the plant choices, and have managed to get the choices down to a short list. Then I had second thoughts about the color scheme.
Some poking around on the internet brought up the idea that a "warm" colored house, needs warm colored plants. A pale lavender flower in front of the red brick is apparently a no-no. We don't have red brick, and I wasn't planning on lavender blooms, but is this a genuine consideration, just like in interior design?
We do have a "warm" house...sort of tan/rust/brownish red brick, and we'll be painting the trim from a tacky off-tan to some shade of green and a reddish front door.
Will plants with silvery foliage be garish? Does this mean no Lamb's Ears for me? Dusty Miller will be screaming "look at meeee!"
I wasn't planning on a totally contrary plant mix, and will be using about a 70/30 mix of evergreen to not, but now I'm questioning my choices.
Oh, and does white (flowers) go with everything?
