The color wheel like most gardens is a work in progress, never finished. It is fun to mix flowers and edible plants together. They compliment each other quite nicely.
There is no master plan as to what gets planted. Many of the plants are donated by fellow Master Gardeners. Each year Jim plants seeds and shares them. Rudbeckia, Zinnias and Marigolds are favorites. He also provides pepper plants.
As you know the garden is shaped like a pie, It has 6 wedges of different colors. Red, blue, green, orange and violet and yellow flowers and foliage fill each wedge.
Go visit the garden, it will make you feel good and you ‘ll probably recognize some of your babies.
