Think about all the variations of green in nature and the emotions that colour evokes. Almost always it is considered calming and tranquil, natural, safe and harmonious. Green is the most balanced of colours making it a stable influence on us. Seldom would we feel anything other than relaxed and refreshed in a green environment regardless of its shade.
But there are many shades of green and these can vary in intensity. For the designer, foliage colour is just as an important consideration as the form of the tree and its function in the landscape.
Blue-Greens & Blue-Silvers
The last category we have defined is a unique combination of green-blue and blue-silver. These are colour we find endearing in a landscape design as it represents a beautiful segment of the Australian bush. All are cool and vary towards mint or silver depending on the level of chlorophyll in the leaf. Great effects can be achieved by accentuating a design with this shade and they look especially good planted with pinks, whites, blues and burgundy red.
