Thinking about background

21st February, 2013

A good example of how a plant needs a foil....something with which to contrast. Here a hamamelis is all but lost to the background of a golden conifer.

Why would you plant a yellow shrub against a golden backdrop? It is always wise to think and visualise everything rather than just bunging something into a spare is a planting opportunity wasted.
