Seasonal Interest and Color

Seasonal Interest and Color are created by the colors that we see when we look at a plant. Color is the element that is often first noticed about a plant. Color is often used in a landscape to provide interest throughout the entire growing season. This is often referred to as seasonal interest. Seasonal interest is simply the time of the year when a plant provides a special characteristic such as flowers, fall color, fruits, etc.
