Re: color coordinating


I guess a lot depends on how "Spectrumly Correct" we feel compelled to
be. My house has a brick trim from top to bottom on one side, about a
third of the front, in sort of a lgt brown-orange spice-black blend. The
previous owners installed yellow siding that looked nearly chartreuse,
white trim and brick-red painted accents. Ugh-o-mundo! I painted the
house tan with chocolate brown trim and spice-orange accents to make the
brick color work.


However, when it comes to plants, I don't color-coordinate. I love pinks
and blues. But I also like salmon which works with the house. I agree
it's a good idea to have pleasing color combinations, but they simply
don't rule around here.


And BTW, the Centranthus ruber, Bonnie mentioned also comes in C.r.var.
alba - white. I think hers is white. Might look good against a brick
background.
