Shades of Grey in the Garden

Private Garden in Burlington, ON We are heading into November, which is a bit of a grey and gloomy month. By late fall, winds have stripped the garden of most of its autumn color. Neutrals like tan, brown, grey and black carry the garden through the winter. This seems like a perfect time to be talking about the uses of grey in the garden. A grey church steeple in a garden in Rosedale, ON. Shades of grey and beige are restful colors. They are undemanding and that makes them feel calm and serene. In this pathway, grey and beige work together to great effect.

(Going forward, I am trying to make a point of photographing plants in the context of a garden and not just doing close-up glamour shots.) And there are also leaves broken with grey like this Brunnera 'Jack Frost' ... or this Coral Bells, Heuchera, 'Berry Marmalade'. Here is another Heuchera to show you an example of how this plant might be used in combination with other perennials. There are also solid greys like Lamb's Ears. (And here is Lamb's Ears in a garden setting.) A lovely bonus of grey foliage is that often it has a soft, downy texture. In the next part of my grey series, I will look at some of the many grey plant options.
