The assorted Nasturtium seeds I planted in with this violet/purple Tradescanthia have turned out to be bright orange, a perfect complementary color for the grouping. This is the granite 'end table' next to the new granite bench. I can't wait for more of the orange buds to open up. Click images to enlarge.
Meanwhile, I planted the same assorted Nasturtium seeds next to the salmon-colored house and they've turned out to be peach colored. They look beautiful next to the almost same-colored wooden clapboards. The bright orange ones that have blossomed in the backyard would have looked garish in this placement. And who says there's no magic left in this world? The seeds were not marked on the envelope other than saying "various reds and oranges."
