I’m not very good at planning plant colour combinations. I’m more of a shape and structure person. I can visualize the beds shapes, pathways and plant shapes that I want but often have more difficulty when it comes to combining colours. Maybe that is why I do not have a lot of perennials in my gardens — who knows. However, quite by accident I managed to create this combination of cerise pink blooms — ‘Gay Paree’ Peony and Weigela ‘Wine & Roses’.
