“Yellow is the predominant colour, used with lime-green and white. At the back of the biggest bays were clumps of enormous sunflowers, with heads big enough to knock you out, should they happen to fall your way. Some of them were double. The foreground planting was made up mostly of annuals in the white, yellow, and lime-green theme, used in slightly different combinations in each bay. Lime-green nicotiana was one of the stalwarts, growing at its proper height, rather than in a dwarfed state. White cosmos was another, the clean simple flowers set against surprisingly good foliage. There are not many annuals noted for their leaves. Both these flowers are easy to raise from seed and go together well, the tobacco flower’s stodgy foliage relieved by the featheriness of the other. With these two came tall acid-yellow African marigolds, the whole lot laced together with creeping tendrils of lime-green helichrysum."
