|Pink Cleome with daylilies of many colors|
|Orange Vols with hosta flowers|
I have Orange Vols daylily close to a patch of purple blooming hosta. Orange Vols is a bright neon orange; one of those you see from across the yard.
I would seldom recommend combining purple and orange. It kinda screams CLASH! When I planted them, the hosta wasn't blooming as early as it has the past few years. Now they have blooms on at the same time.
AND I love the contrast. Don't be afraid to experiment with colors the experts warn against. Using only a strict interpretation of the color wheel eliminates happy mistakes. These are some of mine.
