Garden Ideas for Flowers with Green Blooms
- Use groupings of a single flower variety to add a unique contrast to an existing flower garden.
- Plant waves, like three rows of five plants each that start just behind a large plant or shrub and then curve forward and in front of another large plant or shrub.
- Create a mostly green flower garden with occasional touches of other flower colors like yellow daisies, snapdragons or yarrow.
