Hi. Does anybody have a garden that is color coordinated in section? Like one section has white flowers, then pink, then Purple, etc. if so can you upload it. I want to try that this year and want to get an idea what it looks like.

Thank you.

Welcome! Dlewny!

I love your idea! I have several times started out with such intentions but I have a plant buying addiction. So I end up having to find spots to plant everything and abandoning the plan!

I have a planting addiction too. That is why I had to pull out my whole garden to start over. It just became a big mish mash of different sizes and colors with no rhyme or reason! Blinking

I am forever digging stuff up and moving it. Sometimes whole sections.

My garden is mish-mash so can't help you with my own photos. My Mother loved this sort of planting though. It called 'color blocks'. Here' a photo from Sunset Magazine:
