Did you know that red and green are complementary colors? They sit directly across from each other on the color wheel, so they always look good together.
Many gardeners shy away from using red in the garden. Red does attract the eye and can appear to be screaming in the garden. But there are so many shades of red to choose from. It would be a shame to miss out on so many great plants because of a bias against red. The trick is learning to see which red will work with the other plants you love. Luckily, most reds make it very apparent which hue they're leaning toward, whether it's orange or blue or burgundy.
