An Island Flower Bed That Looks Gorgeous from Every Angle

Large lawns can look a little ho-hum. To break the monotony, try this island bed garden plan, which is low maintenance and designed to look beautiful no matter where it’s viewed from. A small ornamental plum tree anchors the planting and produces stunning pink and white double flowers in spring as well as pretty fall foliage. A dwarf weigela complements the flower show with its own pink spring blossoms. Surrounding perennials and groundcover provide seasonal pops of color with emphasis on pinks and yellows and hints of blue from bluebells. Three optional onion varieties further emphasize the pink and yellow theme. The plants in this design do best in full sun, but will tolerate light shade.
