When you walk into a backyard, you might notice odor first. Walk into a lilac garden and you will probably be knocked off your feet from the odor. Or perhaps you’re the sort of person who sees colour and shape . Maybe you’re just the type who beverages in every thing in the backyard and focuses on the total ambience of the space.
Or maybe you are like me, and also the first thing you see is the color. You notice the variations of yellowish in that field over there and are mesmerized by that color of blue. The translucence of those peach petals is amazing, and wow! — are those black hollyhocks?
So far we have delved into gardens adorned with white, blue and red flowers. Now that Independence Day has passed, even though, we are moving on to sweeter colors, the girly women of this backyard — that the pinks.
Pink whispers femininity as it is pastel and yells it when it is bright. A very simple kettle of vibrant, sexy pink blooms makes an entrance that can’t be overlooked.
Try grouping pinks to make the most magnificent of surrounds for your outdoor entertaining area. To do this look, attempt crepe myrtle, weigela or camellias.
Roses are the traditional option for a blossom pink in the backyard. From bushes to climbers into the Old English ramblers, roses have a place in any garden. This one is a flower carpet rose.
You might want to test one of my favorites, a pink rugosa rose, for a rugged, tough plant that will grow in harsh circumstances.

Vintage roses are the ideal design tool for the insides. Simple yet luxurious, they could take a neutral room and twist it on its heels at an instant.
Of course in spring, there is nothing better than the traditional pink peony. From bud to blossom, these blossoms are a perennial favorite.

Hardy hydrangeas are just another perennial favorite. Use them as standalone plants in mixed borders or exhibit them en masse for an intoxicating effect.
Rhododendron bushes are yet another traditional pink which can burst into bloom every year and leave passersby slack-jawed with their attractiveness.
If your backyard is a little more relaxed than classic, a little more desert than woodland, then you might want to try grasses. Muhly grass (shown) is an excellent option for a wallop of color.

If you would like to stick with the milder side of pink, then you might want to put money into a couple of fruit trees. From Japanese cherry into some varieties of apple and plum, many fruit trees possess pink blossoms that abound in early to mid spring. Plant flowering fruit trees in combination with Eastern redbuds and flowering almond bushes for a symphony of pink before summer.

Bougainvillea is another fantastic option to match flowering fruit trees.

Another plus: These flowering fruit trees are perfect for forcing each winter for a burst of springtime in the middle of February or even March.
