Warm, Cold Or Neutral?

By Stephanie
Sometimes I dream of having many wonderful flowers in really warm colours. When the plants do blossom in red, orange and yellow, I wonder why they aren't that energetic or lively. I thought that perhaps it's due to the wet weather and cloudy sky.

Later, however, I discovered that the other cause of the dullness in warm colours could be the hue itself. A warm pink is kind of peachy pink whereas a cool pink is purplish pink. Warm, Cold or Neutral?
They say you can't paint a room in bright yellow as it is a hard color for the eyes. But a cold yellow like the color of these Russelia Equisetiformis 'Flava' flowers is okay and maybe good for the kitchen

Earth orange is a cold orange. Maybe these Chinese hat blooms is of that hue...

The blooms don't really look that bright even when the sun is smiling.

As for green, if you think they are all warm colours, you will be surprised that aquamarine and teal are categorised as cold greens. Observe how the color of C. infundibuliformis 'Shamrock' blooms appear so differently as compared with its leaves...

Coriander is my favorite herb. I love it in almost everything especially in curry flavoured instant noodle :-) I say this green is definitely a warm green. Agree?

On several occasions, I thought of tossing away this Hibiscus syriacus. It does come back strong till it's infested with bugs. At the moment, its dense foliage in bright green does look promising. I really hope that this time round, it will bloom one or two flowers. It has not been flowering for a long, long time!

This little pot of succulent (I think) has grown much taller since I purchased it few months ago. Hmm... wonder if I can prune it. Anyone recognize this plant?

The tresses of the Strophanthus pruessii flowers are noticeable not by its color but by the unique shape. The white and yellowish flowers are definitely more obvious than the long warm maroon appendages.

Azalea blooms are really lovely when watched close-up. White is a neutral color. But I think this one is warm ;-)

Warm, Cold or Neutral?

Warm colours make the garden livelier whereas cool colours makes the garden cold. Don't you think so? Or is it true only for paint colours indoor? What about neutral coloured blooms?
Happy discovering the colours in your garden!
