Should you plant a diversity of colors in a large garden?

Adding color in a large garden

In a large garden, wide palette of colors can be used at your discretion. However, just as in a smaller garden, you might want to stick with a few colors or some signature plants such as groundcovers that will unify your diverse plantings. You may choose to plant each area in a particular palette that complements its sun and light characteristics: for instance, grey leaved plants and brightly colored flowers in a sunny exposure; dark green and paler colored flowers in shadier areas. These could then be tied together using signature plants or by gradually transitioning the color scheme where two areas meet.
