We live on Vancouver Island, and I am not sure yet what zone I am in. I am a newbie gardener. We are moving to a house at the end of Feb that is quite large and barnlike. It is lacking colour, andneeds some bushes pruned and such. I would like to know some ideas for plants/flowers to grow that might help with adding a pop of colour around the house and help offset the height of this building. I am going to assume we need to plants some flowers that grow taller? What do you think? Any other sprucing up ideas for us? Ie/where to put some pots, hanging pots? Many thanks!!
