The Orange and Purple Perennial Garden in March

Most of the yellows have given way to orange as we enter autumn. The blues and purples are still strong. The background perennials (Salvias, penstemon, leonotis) are getting really tall. I will definitely be moving the 2 Geranium 'Johnson's Blue' further back as they are overwhelming the smaller plants at the front. The shrubs of Fothergilla are starting to colour up for autumn, which is going to look fabulous in this scheme. They are only a year old, so will get more dominant with time.
