No colour could be more compatible with these concepts than the ultimate in purity: white. White-flowering bulbous plants: so many to choose from. Endless ribbons of white daffodils, a colour field full of white tulips, or a lawn sprinkled with white crocuses are examples of elements so useful in designing a simple yet striking contemporary garden.
Minimalism is key to the contemporary blue garden. Masses of a single variety are perfect for this kind of space with its crisp clean contours. For low-growing varieties, consider the use of colour fields composed of Scilla siberica, edges of Iris reticulata, a river of Anemone blanda and masses of purple-blue crocuses. For container gardening, choose grape hyacinths or hyacinths. A stunning design will consider not only the harmony of colours, however, but the shapes of the flowers as well. The variety afforded by spring-flowering bulbs is so great that you should have absolutely no trouble at all in finding exactly what you want for your contemporary garden design.
