I love green in the garden. Who doesn’t? It’s the colour of new growth. Photosynthesis. Good health.
But that’s not the green I’m talking about here. I’m talking lime green. Pucker-yer-lips, jolt-to-the-system lime.
I used lime green cushions in my back patio to add a punch of colour to an otherwise subdued palette. The lime of the pillows is echoed by the bright, bamboo-like foliage of Northern sea oats (Chasmantheum latifolium), which you can see peeking out on the left side of this photo. Lime contrasts so nicely with red cedar, as well as charcoal gray stone (or Sunbrella fabric, as the case may be).
Looking for other lime green accents? Here are some of my faves.

And then there are plants, of course. Like this lime green nicotiana. Photo by scott.zona on Flickr.
So many lime green heucheras! This one is Heuchera ‘Key Lime Pie’. Photo via The Plant Directory.
