I am obsessed with pink and purple combinations. Light pink and light blue combinations. Dark Blue lobelia with hot pink geraniums. I have been planning ahead and seeing flower beds and pots and I think I have found yet again all pink/purple/blue combinations. What combinations do you use in pots/beds.
Last year I grew mostly hot colored zinnias (State Fair) with mixed nasturtiums through a bed of white alyssum as an edging in the front yard. I don't usually like hot colors, but it looked great, and I got a lot of compliments on it. I'm kind of a purple fiend, normally.
While I'm not huge on pink myself, my mother-in-law had a variety of verbena in containers that looked outstanding. Over the life of the bloom it changed between a soft pink, coral, and apricot color. The verbena 'lanai peach' looks close to what it was (http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/134509/).
I also love blue edging lobelia (it bloomed from early summer-1st hard frost for me).
I love light pinks with light grey and maroon foliage, im a huge fan of the purple pink combo, cant seem to get away from it. As for the brighter combos i like dark blue and oraange or deep purple with yellow.
