|I have been working on an island garden for the past year. The plan was to cover up/hide the ugly BIG green electrical box in my front yard. This spring when all things were in flower it hit me that everything I planted there had the colors of the sunset, everything in the yellow-red spectrum. As of right now I have 3 types of Canna, day lilies, a dahlia (hasn't bloomed but supposed to be orangy red), gladiolas, blackberry lily, and couple of iris'. Any suggestions on what else to add to the island?

|If you want contrast or to set off the sunset colors, how about deep or brilliant purples? Dwarf Lavender, short Clematis (Roguchi is wonderful), Agapanthus, May Night Salvia, Veronica...
