Annual Plantings

Garden designer Carole Kraft specializes in perennials, but annuals are her mainstay in winter.

This pocket garden she designed is almost always full of soft purples and lemon yellows. Among the plants: pincushion flowers, pansies, daffodil foliage, catmint, and candytuft.

For more impact, buy plants with flowers in single colors (mixed-color flowers can give your garden a spotty look). Combine them with plants in similar or contrasting colors.
