Red Flowers: Choosing The Right Plants
There will be buttercups, carnations, petunias … together we choose the most beautiful plants that produce red flowers of various shades for our angle of passion.
In addition to choosing plants that all bloom in the same color there are other aspects and factors to keep in mind when choosing plants to dye our garden or balcony red.
In the soil or in pots, gardens or terraces, an important factor to consider in the choice of plants is that of flowering.
In fact, if we want a colored corner with different shades of red, we have to narrow our search among the plants that bloom in the same period to avoid areas or corners without flowers.
In addition to the climate, which will primarily affect the choice of plants, since a place that is too harsh requires the choice of more rustic plants that are not afraid of the cold.
Another aspect that will condition us, will be the exposure of the balcony or terrace or the place of the garden where we want to create, with our favorite color, a corner dyed with many red flowers.
Choosing, of course, plants that prefer the same exposure, depending on whether it is sunny in the shade or half shade, is therefore essential to have plants that grow and bloom all strong and lush.
The Ideal Arrangement
In choosing the right plants, in addition to the exposure and flowering period, there is another very important aspect to consider, namely the maximum size that the plants we will buy will reach, so that we can distribute them properly.
The arrangement of the plants depends exclusively on the place where we want them to be arranged, if they will be in a flowerbed near a fence wall we can prefer a growing arrangement by arranging the plants that will be taller behind and lower in front.
If, on the other hand, the place chosen is in the middle of the garden, we can arrange the tallest plants in the center and all around those that will grow lower, obtaining a different effect.
Taking advantage of the different shades of color offered by the many red flowers, produced by the plants chosen, we can give free rein to our imagination by obtaining the angle of passion we want.
