A garden in pink from spring to autumn

A garden in pink from spring to autumn

Read the previous part. ← How to create a rose garden

Astilbes are the most graceful perennials: both the shape of the bush and the carved strong leaves in themselves are works of skillful nature.

Their inflorescences - brushes amaze the imagination with the subtlety of the pattern: they can be of the correct pyramidal shape, high, medium and low, dense and sparse; can freely spread transparent brushes of creamy white, pink, lilac small flowers.

The combination of astilba with roses in bouquets and flower beds is an unforgettable sight! Having mentioned pink roses, one cannot but mention the wrinkled pink rosehip and its other species blooming with large fragrant flowers all summer long. In the spring, Ledebour almonds are strewn with light pink flowers, weigela - with dark pink flowers.


Various bows also support the pink and lilac palette of the garden (chives, giant bow, Ostrovsky). The adorable herb carnation can move into your garden from a nearby meadow.

There you can also find willow and twig-shaped loosestrife, fireweed, which will revive the flower garden with candle-shaped pink inflorescences.

Among the tall "free queens" one cannot fail to note the purple foxglove, which has countless bell-shaped flowers of various shades of pink with specks inside.

Self-seeding foxglove can occur in the most unexpected place in the garden. You just need to remember that the plant is poisonous, and therefore children should be protected from contact with it.

Peonies will reign in the June garden with the splendor of large, heavy flowers of all kinds of colors and shades, and there are many suitable varieties for the "rose" garden.

It should be noted that the leaves of peonies themselves are very decorative: in spring, young shoots are brownish-red, in summer the leaves are dark green, shiny, and in autumn they retain their attractiveness. For good flowering, peonies require a bright place, nutritious slightly acidic soil, well-drained, proper planting and good nutrition. Peonies live in one place for 10-15 years, making up a spectacular dominant in any garden.

Peony bushes can be alternated in a rabatka with groups of pearl anaphalis with silvery leaves and large shields of white flowers. Peonies go well with paniculate phlox: the former finish flowering, and the latter begin, while the elegant, carved leaves of peonies perfectly set off the light foliage of the phlox.

Slender bushes of paniculate phlox form large color spots. This genus has an exceptional richness of pink colors with various nuances in the form of strokes, eyes of a different color, and, of course, many shades - cold and warm. For a better perception of them, it is worth "diluting" the colored curtain with white-flowered varieties, which can have not only spherical, but also pyramidal of various proportions, the shape of inflorescences, as well as different flowering periods.

The aristocrat of the garden lily is crowned with luxurious flowers of various colors, among which the pink palette is very diverse.

Asian hybrids, the most reliable in our conditions, are often decorated with specks and strokes, which makes them especially attractive. Asparagus, planted between the lilies, will give them a special charm with a cloud of delicate greenery. Gypsophila paniculata and annual will be good as partners: their small white flowers on branched shoots will wrap, like a bride's veil, slender lilies, as well as roses.

The same role is played by maiden feverfew with white double baskets of flowers, similar to small-flowered chrysanthemums. Its white, abundantly flowering bushes illuminate the darkest corners of the tree crowns and are combined with any plant.

The hedge, strewn with delicate pink, white-pink, pink with purple streaks of large flowers, allows you to create unpretentious musk mallow. This ancient plant of village gardens has not lost its charm at all.

In summer, the lushly blooming, slender mallow bushes give a feeling of lightness and festive mood. To match the mallow with tall candles, seated with pink double flowers, there are stately stock roses. The colors of their flowers are now just dizzy, and there are many new products for the rose garden. They will bloom until the very frost.

Mallow and stock-rose are propagated by seeds, like all biennial plants, sown in open ground in June, planted in a permanent place in August. Stock roses are tied to supports (sometimes they grow more than 2 m tall!).

Of the annuals with pink flowers, one cannot but recall the three-month lavater. Its bell-shaped flowers, like a thin brush, are painted with white or purple veins.

You can sow it directly into the ground in May, flowering continues until frost. Kosmeya with feathery leaves and large multi-colored inflorescences-baskets is also good. Pink begonias, nasturtium, diastia, petunias can grow in containers and move to any corner of the garden where a color accent is required.

Pink, lilac "daisies" will decorate the flower garden small-petaled (erigeron), pink pyrethrum, purpurea echinacea. Star inflorescences of Alpine, Italian, chamomile, Chinese asters are familiar to everyone and do not require special recommendations.

Every year, the variety of varieties and colors allows you to make any compositions from these elegant plants. If low shrub asters with a spherical shape of a bush, completely covered with graceful flowers of bright pink, lilac tones, have not yet settled in your garden, by all means get them - you will not regret it!

They are perfectly combined with tall New Belgian and New England asters, blooming small radiant flowers of pink, lilac-pink, purple (as well as white, blue, purple) on spreading openwork bushes. Perennial asters bloom until the very frost, closing the season together with Korean chrysanthemum, a prominent stonecrop and autumn crocus, preserving the pink veil of the outgoing summer.

4. Dicenter

Unusual flowers in the form of hearts (up to 2 cm in diameter) adorn the plant from late May to July. On the corolla of flowers there are two spurs-like processes, therefore the plant is sometimes called "double-spur".

The dicenter blooms more abundantly in the sun or in partial shade. In this case, the soil should be nutritious, loose and permeable.


Autumn plants

So that a monochrome garden in pink tones pleases with its flowering from the end of summer until the onset of the first frost, you can plant dahlias, asters, hellebore. The main feature of dahlias is their excellent decorative qualities. Many varieties have been developed that differ in shape, texture, palette of shades. There are single-row, anemone, spherical, peony, semi-double, collar, semi-cactus, mixed varieties. Recently, the Japanese curb dahlia have been bred. Chrysanthemum (cactus) varieties deserve special attention, which have narrow, long reed flowers of various shades.

Chrysanthemum is undoubtedly the queen of autumn. There are a lot of varieties of this unpretentious plant. There are miniature shrubs, 20-25 cm high, potted, low, medium-tall from 90 to 150 cm and above. Chrysanthemum bushes can be planted in balls, in flower beds, along garden paths, paths or in beautiful pots. Lush bushes will delight with their beauty until late autumn. These flowers are absolutely unpretentious. Grow well in nutritious, well-hydrated, well-drained soils.

As you can see, there is a huge variety of both flowering and decorative deciduous, herbaceous plants to create a rose garden. Each type of flowers has its own flowering period, and if you choose the right plants to create a harmonious landscape composition, you can achieve continuous lush flowering.


Plants blooming in autumn

In late summer, many pink-colored plants also bloom.

Annual asters

From mid-August to the end of October, the New Belgian aster blooms - the most common in our gardens. This plant forms large, almost triangular bushes with sturdy stems 90-150 cm high and flowers 2-3 cm in diameter, white, blue, lilac, purple, deep pink, red or purple in color. From mid-September to stable frosts, the late New England aster blooms - a giant plant with a height of 150-180 cm.

Dahlias

In the rose garden you cannot do without dahlias "Promotion", "Rose Tendre" and "Rose Preference", variety "Carried Angel" they will delight you with bright pink flowers of huge sizes (the diameter of the inflorescences reaches 22 cm). Skillfully combining the sizes and shades of these flowers, you can achieve very interesting and original effects when decorating a flower bed or flower garden.

Chrysanthemums

The most popular variety of chrysanthemums is Korean. It is distinguished by its relative resistance to low temperatures. In addition, these flowers are famous for their abundant flowering and therefore are widely used in decorative floriculture. Mass flowering of chrysanthemums of an early flowering period begins in late August - early September, a month later, tall varieties of chrysanthemums enter the flowering time.

For the selection of plants blooming in late autumn, varieties that are not afraid of autumn frosts are especially important. They will form the basis of autumn compositions in pink tones. These are dwarf shrubs - heathers - there are many varieties with pink flowers.

Ornamental cabbage is not afraid of frost, it blooms when almost all plants have faded. Ornamental cabbage is amazingly beautiful, its leaves in the central part are painted in various shades of pink and are collected in spectacular rosettes resembling large roses.


Mandeville, or diplodenia: varieties and types of a bright accent plant

The Mandevilla plant genus includes countless species and hybrids, but only a few are cultivated. About 120 species of this plant are known all over the world. Various varieties of Mandeville are available in vibrant, colorful colors. They can be found in pink, red and white and in other shades. Since 2011, yellow flowering varieties have appeared. All Mandevillas bloom tirelessly from May to late autumn.

Leaves are leathery, shiny and deeply dark green. Plants contain a white, poisonous sap that only comes out when the plant is damaged.

Continuous flowering garden

To create a continuously blooming garden is within the power of anyone, not only an experienced, but also a novice gardener, even in a small area, everyone who has his own piece of land and desire. Of course, the words “continuous blooming” does not mean that the garden continues to bloom in winter, or that some plant blooms all summer. The flowering of some simply replaces the flowering of other plants.

In a book that is small in volume, it is impossible to give a description of all or almost all of the beautifully flowering plants that can be grown in your garden, if it is not botanical in size, and therefore the assortment, of course, had to be limited. Flowering plants were selected according to a simple principle: unpretentiousness to growing conditions, not too demanding to care, relatively low price, that is, the book includes plants that are easy to purchase, and therefore they will not be dug out from you in order to transplant them. Flowering shrubs and perennial flowers are preferred because they will form the backbone of your continually blooming garden for many years to come. However, there is one "but" with such a selection of plants. Your compositions can become boring for you in a few years. Whether it's annuals, their assortment and planting site can be changed like gloves every year, giving the garden a novelty. Therefore, I tried to combine both directions and bring to your attention a collection of plants that pleases the eye from early spring to late autumn. Moreover, it is not at all necessary to collect all the offered plants, you can reduce or, conversely, expand the proposed assortment, while the continuity of flowering will be preserved if you select plants so that they, replacing each other, decorate your garden all season.

Such a continuously blooming garden cannot be created in one year. In the first year of planting, it will look wretched, but after a couple of years, when the planted shrubs and perennial flowers grow, it will really start to delight you. To speed up this process, do not plant plants one at a time, plant a small group of each variety or species at once. The selection of plants for such a garden is not at all a simple matter, and so that you do not have to endlessly transplant plants, first plant them at home on paper with a pencil, erasing with an eraser and transferring your plantings so that they satisfy you, and only then embody your project in reality. Creating such a garden is a very exciting experience, which is especially pleasant to do at home in the winter.

The very beginning of spring

As soon as the snow begins to melt, the first harbingers of spring appear on the thawed patches - small-bulbous plants, and spring crocuses appear in the first rows.

Crocus

From each flat-round corm, several stems with one bud grow at once, and a small blooming bunch opens up. Varied (except for reds) color of flowers creates bright, cheerful spots on bare black soil. Unfortunately, crocuses bloom for a short time, 7-10 days, but if you managed to admire them, and not only magpies, crows and mice, then you have already experienced the first festive mood. About 10-12 days after flowering, the crocuses can be dug up, disassembled and transplanted. True, this will have to be done every 3-4 years, since they grow very quickly. Otherwise, the bulbs will begin to shrink, and the flowering will weaken. Both plants and bulbs are planted in sand poured onto fertile soil with a neutral reaction. Therefore, when planting in the sand, you should add ash, about 1 teaspoon each under the onion. Do not rush to do spring nitrogen fertilization. Although crocuses and cold-resistant plants can withstand frosts up to 6 degrees, nevertheless feed them after flowering with a complete mineral fertilizer, for example Azofoska (use 2-3 tablespoons of fertilizer per 10 liters of water for 10 sq. M of plantings).

Crocuses do not get sick, but they have terrible enemies - mice. Leave the bait for them even before the crocus blooms. Either scatter coriander (cilantro) or anise seeds among the plantings, or a special feeding "Storm" or "Foret", if you do not have cats, but if you have, then there should be no mice. True, many gardeners drive their pets home to sleep in the evening, making a mistake, because cats and mice are nocturnal animals, and you deprive them of a date, especially if you feed the cats in the evening, as they say, from the belly. And why, one wonders, do they need mice?

Crocuses can be planted under trees and bushes. As long as there are no leaves on these plants, the crocuses will have enough light and time to bloom and form new bulbs. Then they will retire until next spring, and they will not need light. Crocuses are planted on rocky and alpine hills, in curbs, in flower pots and containers.

Spring crocuses can also be planted on the lawn. Then, in early spring, instead of a black, unattractive patch, a lovely flower garden will appear in place of the lawn, which will have time to bloom by the time it will be necessary to mow the lawn.Together with crocuses, other early-flowering small-bulbous plants can be planted on the lawn: galanthus, chionodoxu, prolesk (scilla), pushkinia. The growing grass will cover the leaves of the faded bulbs, and when in mid-May you need to mow the lawn, the leaves of these flowers will already serve their purpose and can be mowed. It is better to plant them alternately, more or less evenly throughout the entire territory of the lawn. All these flowers, except for chionodoxa, grow rapidly, and they will have to be dug out of the lawn at least once every 3-4 years and planted or partially removed. The easiest way to do this is while the grass has not yet begun to grow, that is, at the time of flowering or immediately after it, since they tolerate transplanting well at this time. When transplanting, lightly trim the roots with them.

White flower (Leucojum)

Its flowers - drooping bells - are often confused with the very similar flowers of the snowdrop (galanthus). All white perianth petals of the same size have green or yellow dots at the tips. There are white flowers spring, summer and autumn (unlike snowdrop, which blooms exclusively in spring). In addition, the white flower is much taller: spring - 20 cm, summer - 50-60 cm and only autumn - 12 cm. It blooms at the very beginning of May and even at the end of April in warm spring, like most small-bulbous plants, for about 2 weeks.

The plant is unpretentious, can grow on wet soils, in partial shade. It grows rapidly, so every 3-4 years, heavily overgrown nests of bulbs should be divided and planted.

It is better to plant, transplant, plant the bulbs in autumn (in September - October), to a depth of 8 cm at a distance of 10–20 cm from each other or according to a 15 × 15 cm pattern. But then you need to mark the places where the bulbs are located with a stick, otherwise you will not find them ... You can plant them during flowering, when they are clearly visible.

The plant is frost-hardy (tolerates rather severe frosts) and winter-hardy (not afraid of winter thaws).

Snowdrop (Galantus)

It is very similar to the white flower and differs from it only in the presence of 3 inner narrower "petals" with green tips and 3 larger outer pure white ones. It blooms simultaneously with white flower and spring crocuses. Plant height 10-12 cm. It blooms for about 2 weeks, in the North-West - in late April - early May.

Newly acquired bulbs are planted in September - October to a depth of 10 cm according to a 10 × 10 cm scheme. They are planted immediately after flowering, while the leaves have not withered yet, after digging and dismantling the bulbs' nests, and immediately replanted to a new place. This, too, is its difference from the white flower.

She does not need shelter for the winter. It can be planted on an alpine or rocky hill or on a lawn, as well as in low borders among other later flowering low-growing plants.

Chionodoxa

It is a graceful, short (about 15 cm) plant with flowers that resemble stars, usually painted in blue, purple or light blue. But there are also albino plants with pure white flowers. Chionodox blooms for a long time, about 3 weeks. It reproduces slowly, so it can grow in one place without dividing the nest for 6-7 years. This plant has no diseases or pests. It does not need additional fertilizing, provided that you planted it on AVA (2-3 grains of granular fertilizer for 3 years) or in the spring, immediately after the snow melted, sprinkled the soil with ash at the planting site. Looks beautiful only in group plantings, single plants do not make an impression.

Like all bulbous, it does not like dense and acidic, waterlogged soils. Grows well in sun and partial shade. Its small elongated bulbs are planted in September to a depth of 8 cm according to the 8 × 8 cm scheme. The overgrown nests are dug out immediately after flowering and immediately planted.

Attention: the bulbs tend to go deep into the soil, and therefore dig, deeply burying the shovel into the ground.

Scilla

Following the chionodoxa, the delicate flowers of the woodland bloom. This is a fairly large family: English, Spanish, Peruvian, bell-shaped, Siberian. The difference lies in size, inflorescence, color and flowering time. We are mostly familiar with our native, Siberian, whose bright blue drooping bells so liven up the spring garden!

It blooms with cute bouquets of flowers from one bulb. The peduncle is only about 12-15 cm high and is clearly visible among the flat, bright green leaves. Flowering lasts about 2 weeks. After flowering for another 10 days, the leaves remain green. There are also albinos with white flowers.

This unpretentious plant can grow on any soil, in the sun and in partial shade. It grows quickly, and therefore must be planted every 3-4 years immediately after the bulbs have been dug. The time of planting and transplanting the woodland, like most bulbous perennials, is the end of September - the beginning of October. Hibernates without any shelter.

Anemone (Anemona), Corydalis (Corydalis), Violet (Viola)

At the beginning of May, in shady places, bunches of delicate white flowers of an anemone, corydalis bloom, and a little later, purple violet flowers bloom. These forest plants usually appear on their own (you can, of course, dig them up in the forest at the time of flowering and move them to your site for trees and bushes). Do not remove them, let them grow where they could break through. They are not competitors of cultivated plants. It is all the more pleasant to see them on the site, because unlike the cultivated plantings of small-bulbous, blooming for only 10-15 days, these forest dwellers bloom for about 3 weeks, and in shady places.

Badan (Bergenia)

It is usually called thick-leaved, although there are not only thick-leaved badanbut also badan heart-leaved... Both plants are about 40 cm high, both have leathery evergreen, hibernating leaves, they just have different shapes. In thick-leaved bergenia, they look like ficus leaves, and in heart-leaved ones, they have the shape of a heart.

Badan thick-leaved has a tonic mild effect, and often a black badan leaf appears in tea collections. Many do not know that when the leaves of badan turn black, they become raw materials for taiga teas (taiga tea is called a special collection of plants that strengthen the immune system, have a tonic effect, and have biological activity, usually hunters and geologists take them with them to the taiga), and throw away this valuable raw material.

Badan thick-leaved blooms for about 30 days, in early spring, from late April to late May, with thick lilac-pink bell-shaped flowers, collected in a loose paniculate inflorescence on a thick peduncle. They resemble giant hyacinths. The flowers have a delicate pleasant aroma. Heart-shaped incense blooms for only 20 days in May, but it has varieties with white flowers.

Plants prefer moist, fertile, loose soils and shady places, but they even grow on bare high peat. Grow quickly in good conditions. They should be divided in early September, after 5-7 years. You can simply chop off a piece of rhizome with a shovel and transplant it to another place, and fill the resulting void with well-rotted compost. With too frequent transplants and divisions, the plants begin to hurt.

Badans are very good in mass planting among stones, near water bodies, near trees and bushes, combined with ferns, hosts. Thanks to their evergreen foliage, they are decorative all summer long.

They practically do not have diseases and pests. If rusty spots appear on the leaves, then they just need to be removed from the plant.

Muscari, or Mouse hyacinth

In nature, there are about 50 species of them, in culture - no more than 15. Flowering lasts from mid to late May. The leaves are narrow, die off much later than other small-bulbous plants, so it should not be planted on the lawn. The spike-shaped inflorescence resembles a miniature hyacinth. The varieties differ in color - from pale blue to dark blue and even slightly purple. However, there is also an albino with pure white flowers.

It grows very quickly, and therefore needs to dilute the nest of bulbs and plant at least once every 3-4 years. The thickening of the nest is caused not only by the formation of a large number of young onions around the mother bulb, but also by fallen seeds.

A very cute spring flower that grows in almost any soil - both in the sun and in partial shade, under the crown of bushes and trees, does not require any maintenance. It is not susceptible to the invasion of pests and the attack of diseases.

In early spring, ornamental shrubs are also a decoration of the garden, in which flowers appear before leaves.

Daphna

It begins to bloom in April, when there is still snow in shady places. Daphne has common names - wolfberry and wolf bast. She got the name wolfberry for the poisonous berries, and the wolf's bast - because the bark, which can be easily removed from it, is very strong for tearing.

This is a short shrub, no higher than 1 m in height, blooms even before the formation of leaves. In early spring, the plant throws out a very strong peduncle, which literally in a week will be covered with bunches of 2-3 flowers. The flowers are small, lilac-pink, very similar to lilac flowers, completely covering last year's shoots, so it is not recommended to cut Daphne in the fall. The most charming thing about flowers is that they are the earliest, very beautiful and fragrant. After flowering, beautiful light green leaves 7–8 cm long appear, collected in a rosette at the ends of the shoots. In July - August, oval, coral-red, very elegant berries ripen on the site of the former flowers. They sit tightly at the ends of the branches, and in autumn the plant looks extremely impressive with them.

Attention!

If you want to have this adorable plant on your site, then explain to the children that the berries are poisonous. The action of the venom of these berries is similar to that of a snake, that is, it causes paralysis of the nervous system. Of course, nothing will come from one berry - if someone just tasted a berry, he will immediately want to spit it out because of a strong burning sensation on the lips, of course, nothing terrible will happen. But if someone eats a handful of these berries, then you will have to take emergency rescue measures. To avoid misfortune, after the flower stalk has faded, you need to take a pruner and cut off the entire faded part so that berries do not form.

The plant has no pests and no diseases, it can fend for itself on its own without your participation.

Daphne is found in our forest, so you can dig her up and plant her in your garden. Even if you bring a seedy plant from the forest and plant it on good organic-rich soil, then in 2-3 years daphne will turn into a beauty. Moreover, the bush itself forms, becomes spherical, and the color of the leaves becomes very intense.

Daphne perfectly spreads both by self-sowing and by sowing with seeds, which ripen immediately after flowering. At the end of September, you remove these berries and immediately sow them into the soil about 3 cm deep, quite rarely. It happens, of course, that plants are delayed with germination, but most often they sprout in the coming spring. At the end of summer, you can transplant them wherever you want. From seeds, daphne grows slowly and will bloom only in the 4th – 5th year.

Daphne is shade-tolerant, so you don't need to plant her in the sun. She is hygrophilous. In hot dry summers, which is very rare in the North-West, it will have to be watered.

Daphne is very smart in single plantings, but beautiful in a group with other plants.

Daphne flowering time coincides with flowering time blue liverwort, or hepatics... This is also a forest savage. She also grows in the forest and in the shade. If you plant a hepatica under the plantings of Daphne, then in the spring against the background of purple leaves, blue flowers standing vertically on short stalks, Daphne will look very impressive. This composition will be beautiful all summer long.

Forsythia

Following the daphne, also before the leaves appear, forsythia blooms. Usually it is a low, about 1.5 m (although there are varieties up to 3 m), a spreading shrub with beautiful golden-yellow flowers, shaped like small stars. They are collected in bunches that sit densely on the branches of the bush. Flowering lasts about 15 days, after which leaves appear.

There are about 10 species of this plant: almost all of Chinese origin, with the exception of one European. In terms of flowering time, color and shape of flowers, they differ little from each other, except that Chinese more frost-resistant, their leaves are dark green in summer, and in autumn they acquire a purple hue. Brown shoots bend in an arc, which is why the bush has a weeping shape. Have European forsythia leaves do not change color, remaining bright green until late autumn. The bush is erect, slightly brownish shoots form a narrow crown. In severe winters, the plant freezes above the level of the snow cover, but with light cover (for example, with two layers of lutrasil) it hibernates in the Northwest without damage.

Forsythia is unpretentious and hardy, but the plant needs a sunny location, quickly withers in the shade and blooms poorly. A little shading is fine. Prefers well-calcified (pH 6) garden soils. Will not grow on clay.

Care is very simple, since forsythia is a drought-resistant plant, it does not require watering. As a mineral supplement, it is enough in the spring and autumn to sprinkle half a glass of ash under the plant (on wet soil), and as an organic one, it will cost its own leaves that have fallen in autumn. Do not rake them, do not carry them away for the sake of cleanliness and order, and forsythia will feed itself.

Does not suffer from diseases, is not damaged by pests. Excellent plant for lazy people, especially forsythia ovoid, of Chinese origin, does not require shelter for the winter. Unfortunately, it is not widespread in our country.

But there is one caveat: in early spring, when birds have problems with food, they willingly peck at the early swelling buds of forsythia. At this time, you can protect the bushes by hanging a Christmas tree rain on them or entangling the bush with black threads, practically invisible to humans, but noticeable to the watchful eyes of birds. However, after flowering, removing the threads is still a job.

A big mistake is made by those gardeners who cut the shoots every year in order to give the plant a fine compact appearance. As a result of such excessive cutting, the bushes branch strongly and bloom poorly. Leave them alone. Only shortening by a third of the length of the oldest branches is allowed immediately after flowering.

Forsythia is propagated by layering or lignified cuttings in the open field in autumn. Can be propagated in the fall by dividing the bush or by seeds sown in a school at the end of summer. If you bought seeds in a store, then stimulate them by holding for about 20 minutes in a light pink solution of potassium permanganate, immediately sow in a mixture of wet sand and peat and ash (3: 6: 1) and place for stratification in the refrigerator for 2-3 months ... Then take out the crops and place in a bright, warm place. When the seedlings are old enough, transplant them into the ground.

Forsythia should not be planted in the foreground, since it blooms very shortly, and the rest of the time does not have decorative effect. Better give it a background. While most of the plants in the garden have not yet blossomed, its bright flowering will be clearly visible anywhere, and then the unsightly bush will cover the foliage of the more noble inhabitants of the garden. Under the forsythia is the place for forest dwellers - anemone and violet.
