Dark and light
Want to give girlie pink a modern, edgy look? Pair it with burgundy and gray! Deep burgundy complements pastel pink while giving the planting a strong, bold look. Combined in a whitewashed gray pot, this planting makes ultra-feminine pink look modern!
Fuchsia looks great in the spring, but often fades with summer’s heat. Leave it in — the flowers should return in fall, and with the summer-blooming begonia, impatiens and princess flower, this pot will still have plenty of blooms. Iresine and Joseph’s coat will both take off in the summer — if they start to get unruly, it’s OK to pinch them back.
