Annecy 4 flowers and Gold Flower City : white is your ally to illuminate your borders

Annecy ville 4 fleurs et fleur d'or : le blanc est votre allié pour illuminer vos massifs

This flower bed was done in 2013. It is located in a very prestigious location in the center of the city of Annecy. This green space is surrounded by historical buildings and is regularly in the shade in the day. It is therefore important to illuminate with light colors.

White can be associated with all the colors of the color range and this is its great interest.

It can be for example the common point of the floral decoration of the city: in each flower bed, you can introduce white or bicolor plants with white. It is particularly useful for illuminating the beds in the shade as you can see in this picture.

The colors are purple with blue as the main colors. White intervenes to lighten the composition. Yellow, the opposite color, is present on an ad hoc basis.

Although this bed is narrow , there are different stages of plants:

– High plants :

– Medium sized plants

– Edging plants.
