Bright colors and bold rocks on trend for 2017 gardens

With our wet weather and fluctuating temperatures, it’s hard to get into the mood for gardening, but here are some hot trends to consider for you garden from Monrovia Nursery.

  • Small sized luxury: If you’re working with a small space in your garden, add scaled-down versions of iconic plants such as hydrangeas, roses, berries, conifers and clematis to the garden.
  • No waste movement: Gardeners and gardens are being influenced by the “no waste” food movement. A third of households are now growing food. If you a more tradition flower and shrub garden, ease into the movement by growing perennial herbs or add some vegetable in among your established landscaping.
  • Color chameleons: Gardeners are gaga over color-changing plants that provide consistent year-round beauty. A good choice is fuss-free conifers look beautiful in all seasons, but add some surprising color in the winter.
  • Extreme naturalism: Don’t be afraid to add natural elements in your garden. Rocks, boulders and untouched hedges can add an integrated sense of structure to your garden, and is a growing trend for 2017.
  • Climate adaptation: We’ve been focused on saving water in our gardens and landscape for several years, and we should continue to focus on California natives and drought-tolerant plants.
  • Bright, bold colors: Don’t shy away from brilliant oranges, feverish reds, neon yellows, vivid purples, deep, dark reds and black-purples in your garden this year.
  • One-pot wonders: Containers filled with different sorts of plants has been replaced by a trend of using one type of plant per pot, such as a compact hydrangea and new varieties of pomegranates, lavenders, succulents and berries.
