Adding Colour to Cool Days

Adding Colour to Cool Days

The holidays are coming up and you are probably going to have a lot of guests around. There are a couple of things you can do to add colour to your home to make it more inviting.

Pansies are the first on the list. They are small plants but unstoppable bloomers. There are two kinds of blooms: clear-faced and monkey-faced. Clear-faced pansies have petals that are only one colour, while monkey-faced pansies have a black interior surrounded by colored petals. Both types come in a huge selection of colour. Pansies are excellent as container plants — they just need to be kept in a place that gets lots of sun.

Johnny jump-ups and violas are another great option, and they are closely related to the pansy. They can be grown just like pansies, they just have smaller flowers.

If you want to add deeper shades to your home, then primulas and cyclamen are the best option for you. They have intensely coloured flowers in red, blue, white, pink, yellow, and bi-coloured bloom. Plus, they do not need as much sunlight as pansies.
