A Hot Colored Garden


This glowing garden is part of Andrew Grossman's own garden located in Seekonk, Massachusetts. Contrasting with the Blue & White section of Andrew's garden, this "Hot Colored" garden is a festival of yellows, reds and oranges. For Andrew, color schemes are very important to create style and appeal. Extensively flowering from spring to frost in geographic areas where the average minimum winter temperatures are higher than -28°C or -20°F. The overall structure and planting in this garden took about one month. The checkerboard planting scheme is one of the highlights - this simple design of paving stones and plants really creates a dramatic courtyard effect. Here thyme has been used, which requires trimming by hand twice a summer.

As with Claude Monet, Andrew likes neither organized nor constrained gardens. He marries flowers according to their colors and allows them to grow rather freely. Here, the golden daylilies 'Black-Eyed Stella', the coral roses 'Floral Carpet', and Rosa europeana offer a bright bouquet of colors illuminating the checkerboard.
