Colour Colour can bring a garden to life. A subtropical garden doesn’t get much down time. A periodic pop of colour will draw you through the garden, and a small punch of colourful foliage can offer interest all year round. This garden uses a small swathe of Cordyline rubra (palm lily) along with the acid green of the staghorn fern to act as an exclamation point against a darker green backdrop. Less is more when employing colour in the garden. A little colour will grab your eye; a lot of colour will confuse and detract from the harmony of the garden.
