It has been some time since I shared any images of the Crimson zone with you.
This small area is situated behind the Quercus ilex bushes that you can see at the top of the slope and the path that separates it from the large island.
The colour emphasis came about originally by change but I have been adding suitable plants so that now this small area is saturated with colour.
I don’t irrigate this area unless the plants are very stressed so finding suitable plants hasn’t been that easy. There is now quite a lot of shade here too as the Arbutus unedo has grown strongly; it needs to be pruned back into shape soon.
I have been given a lovely ground cover rose that would look wonderful here but that would need water, so at present it is still in its pot, still flowering profusely so I need to decide where to put it.
Do you have colour themed areas in your garden? Do they remain the same colour through the seasons or do you plant so that they change from one period to the next?
