I’ve decided to pump up the red in my garden this year, in honour of Canada’s 150th.
Red is always an eye-catching colour because it contrasts so well with green, which is virtually everywhere outdoors. I am taking it one step further by combing red, green and some crisp white to really play up the national colour palette.
I started early by planting the Canada 150 tulip last fall. The red streaking on this flower mimics the eternal flame that burns on Parliament Hill.
