Melinda's Garden Moment: Coloring your spring garden


MADISON (WKOW)-- Combining colors in your garden can be overwhelming, but with a little help you can have a creative outdoor masterpiece of your own.

Add color to your spring garden with a variety of plants. Spring bulbs combined with early blooming perennials look great with the blossoms of a Betty magnolia.

Spring perennials like long blooming hellebore have evergreen leaves, interesting blooms and are usually overlooked by deer. So are the hairy leaves of the lungwort flower, but they are a hummingbird's favorite.

The delicate blue flowers of Brunnera make a great filler in the garden bed. The variegated leaves of many cultivars like Jack Frost brighten the shade throughout the season.
