Introduction

 

"Colour mixing using Oil paint.
Colour mixing can be fascinating, fun or frustrating, depending on your interest, knowledge or experience. We hope this section will be of help and interest to those who wish to expand their knowledge of colour mixing with oil paint." from Zest-it.

The above page and its website demonstrate what you can do with colour in oil painting - the Foliage Galleries will give you some of the resulting colours and their possible changes of colour from season to season. You can then follow a particular painting style - tint, hue, warm/cold, etc - in your garden to create contrasts etc.

The Plant Soil Moisture is the Text Background Colour -
Light Blue for Wet Soil,
White for Moist Soil and
Bone Yellow for Dry Soil.

Surface soil moisture is the water that is in the upper 10 cm (4 inches) of soil, whereas root zone soil moisture is the water that is available to plants, which is generally considered to be in the upper 200 cm (80 inches) of soil:-

  • Wet Soil has Saturated water content of 20-50% water/soil and is Fully saturated soil
  • Moist Soil has Field capacity of 10-35% water/soil and is Soil moisture 2–3 days after a rain or irrigation
  • Dry Soil has Permanent wilting point of 1-25% water/soil and is Minimum soil moisture at which a plant wilts
  • Residual water content of 0.1-10% water/soil and is Remaining water at high tension
  • Available Water Capacity for plants is the difference between water content at field capacity and permanent wilting point

THE SOIL IT PREFERS

"Soils vary enormously in characteristics, but the size of the particles that make up a soil defines its gardening characteristics:

  • Clay: less than 0.002mm
  • Silt: 0.002-0.05mm
  • Sand: 0.05-2mm
  • Stones: bigger than 2mm in size
  • Chalky soils also contain calcium carbonate or lime

The dominating particle size gives soil its characteristics and because the tiny clay particles have a huge surface area for a given volume of clay they dominate the other particles:

Clay soils have over 25 percent clay. Also known as heavy soils, these are potentially fertile as they hold nutrients bound to the clay minerals in the soil. But they also hold a high proportion of water due to the capillary attraction of the tiny spaces between the numerous clay particles. They drain slowly and take longer to warm up in spring than sandy soils. Clay soils are easily compacted when trodden on while wet and they bake hard in summer, often cracking noticeably.

Sandy soils have high proportion of sand and little clay. Also known as light soils, these soils drain quickly after rain or watering, are easy to cultivate and work. They warm up more quickly in spring than clay soils. But on the downside, they dry out quickly and are low in plant nutrients, which are quickly washed out by rain. Sandy soils are often very acidic.

Silt soils, comprised mainly of intermediate sized particles, are fertile, fairly well drained and hold more moisture than sandy soils, but are easily compacted

Loams are comprised of a mixture of clay, sand and silt that avoid the extremes of clay or sandy soils and are fertile, well-drained and easily worked. They can be clay-loam or sandy-loam depending on their predominant composition and cultivation characteristics.

Peat soils are mainly organic matter and are usually very fertile and hold much moisture. They are seldom found in gardens.

Chalky or lime-rich soils may be light or heavy but are largely made up of calcium carbonate and are very alkaline." from Royal Horticultural Society.

well-drained - indicates that plant will rot in standing water such as wet clay.

with mulch - indicates plant requires 4 inch (10 cms) depth of organic mulch of compost to grow well.


THE SOIL IT PREFERS

The most important requirements for any plant is which pH in which Soil Type it prefers:-

  • the required nutrients from the topsoil rather than the subsoil,
  • air flow through the soil for the roots to breathe in the oxygen and for the roots to breathe out carbon dioxide - The carbon content stored in soil is eventually returned to the atmosphere through the process of respiration, which is carried out by heterotrophic organisms that feed upon the carbonaceous material in the soil. Since plant roots need oxygen, ventilation is an important characteristic of soil. This ventilation can be accomplished via networks of soil pores, which also absorb and hold rainwater making it readily available for plant uptake. Since plants require a nearly continuous supply of water, but most regions receive sporadic rainfall, the water-holding capacity of soils is vital for plant survival.

so that the above is available for that plant in the following acidic or alkaline soils:-

  • Acid Type for Lime-Free Soil, Acid Clay Soil, Acid Sand Soil or Acid Peaty Soil,
  • Alkaline Type for Chalk Soil, Alkaline Clay Soil, Alkaline Sand Soil or Alkaline Peaty Soil,
  • Any for both of Alkaline and Acid Soil Types.

In chemistry, pH is the negative log of the activity of the hydrogen ion in an aqueous solution. Solutions with a pH less than 7 are said to be acidic and solutions with a pH greater than 7 are basic or alkaline. Pure water has a pH of 7.
 

 

SUN ASPECT:-

  • Full Sun: At least 6 full hours of direct sunlight. Many sun lovers enjoy more than 6 hours per day, but need regular water to endure the heat.
  • Part Shade: 3 - 6 hours of sun each day, preferably in the morning and early afternoon. The plant will need some relief from the intense late afternoon sun, either from shade provided by a nearby tree or planting it on the east side of a building.
    Dappled Sun - DS in Part Shade Column: Dappled sunlight is similar to partial shade. It is the sun that makes its way through the branches of a deciduous tree. Woodland plants and underplantings prefer this type of sunlight over even the limited direct exposure they would get from partial shade.
  • Full Shade: Less than 3 hours of direct sunlight each day, with filtered sunlight during the rest of the day. Full shade does not mean no sun.

The overall amount of sunlight received depends on aspect, the direction your garden faces:-

North-facing gardens get the least light and can be damp

South-facing gardens get the most light

East-facing gardens get morning light

West-facing gardens get afternoon and evening light

OTHER FACTORS IN CHOOSING PLANTS:-


Tree/Shrub Growth Shape with
Shrub/Perennial Growth Habit
:-

When selecting plants, you should start by using what you already have in the garden; especially mature trees and shrubs. Each tree or shrub will have one of the following tree growth shapes:-
Columnar
Oval
Rounded / Spherical
Flattened Spherical
Narrow Conical / Narrow Pyramidal
Broad Pyramidal / Broad Conical
Ovoid / Egg-shaped
Broad Ovoid
Narrow Vase / Inverted Ovoid
Fan /Vase
Broad Fan
Narrow Weeping
Broad Weeping
Single-stem Palm, cyad, or similar tree
Multi-stem Palm, cyad, or similar tree

or following Shrub/ Perennial Growth Habit:-

When selecting plants, you should start by using what you already have in the garden; especially mature shrubs and some of your perennials.
Growth Habit - The way a plant grows is genetically determined. How well individual plants grow varies with:

  • availability of light,
  • exposure to wind,
  • and competition for food and space with other plants.

So, if you wish to see your plant at its best, rather than as a plant within a hedge effect, please give it room to grow to produce its natural growth habit. Mature shrubs and perennials will have one of the following growth habits:-

  • Mat.
    Stems densely cover the ground and the flowers extend above.
  • Prostrate / Trailing.
    Stems spread out on the ground and the flowers are borne close to the foliage.
  • Cushion / Mound.
    Tightly packed stems form a low clump and
    the flowers are close to the foliage.
  • Spreading / Creeping.
    Stems extend horizontally then ascend, forming a densely packed mass.
  • Clump.
    Leaf-stalks and flower stems arise at ground level to form a dense mass.
  • Stemless.
    Leaf-stalks and flower stems arise at ground level.
  • Erect or Upright.
    Upright stems stand vertical, supporting leaves and the flowers.
  • Climbing and Scandent.
    Long flexible stems are supported by other plants or structures.
  • Arching.
    Long upright stems arch over from the upright towards the ground.
     


BORDER TYPES:-

These are some of the different border types due to different Sun Aspect (Full Sun, Half Shade, Full Shade) levels and Moisture (Dry, Moist, Wet) levels in the soil:-

  • Desert Border
    Rock gardens and raised beds provide good drainage and make an ideal showcase for small plants and alpines in full sun.
  • Damp Border or Bog Garden
    Bog-garden plants like permanently moist soil. Some will even grow in very shallow water at the edge of a pond or stream.
  • Shady Border or Woodland
    Damp Shade occurs in a cool, humid woodland environment, where the soil is reliably moist all year.
  • Dry Shade
    Dry Shade is where the combined problems of shade and drought are often found by walls, and beneath thirsty, shallow-rooting trees.
  • Full Shade
    Full Shade occurs where permanently shaded positions may be beneath evergreen trees, by high walls, and between tall buildings. Use plants and structures in light colours to help brighten those areas.
    • Sunny Border
      Sunny areas occur where there is no shade from structures or plants for most of the day.
  • Dry Sun on Slopes /Banks
    Dry Sun is where situations prone to drought are in full sun. These include steeply sloping banks with rapid drainage, the base of a warm south- or west-facing wall; and shallow, sandy, or stony soils.

Acid Site - An acid soil has a pH value below 7.0. Clay soils are usually acid and retentive of moisture, requiring drainage. The addition of grit or coarse sand makes them more manageable. Peaty soil is acidic with fewer nutrients and also requires drainage.

Alkaline Soil - An alkaline soil has a pH value above 7.0. Soils that form a thin layer over chalk restrict plant selection to those tolerant of drought.

Bank / Slope problems include soil erosion, surface water, summer drought and poor access (create path using mattock to pull an earth section 180 degrees over down the slope). Then, stabilise the earth with 4 inches (10cms) depth of spent mushroom compost under the chicken wire; before planting climbers/plants through it.

Cold Exposed Inland Site is an area that is open to the elements and that includes cold, biting winds, the glare of full sun, frost and snow - These plants are able to withstand very low temperatures and those winds in the South of England.

Dust and Pollution Barrier 1, 2 - Plants with large horizontal leaves are particularly effective in filtering dust from the environment, with mature trees being capable of filtering up to 70% of dust particles caused by traffic. Plants can also help offset the pollution effects of traffic. 20 trees are needed to absorb the carbon dioxide produced by 1 car driven for 60 miles.

Front of Border / Path Edges - Soften edges for large masses of paving or lawn with groundcover plants. Random areas Within Paths can be planted with flat-growing plants. Other groundcover plants are planted in the Rest of Border.

Seaside Plants with Coastal Conditions that deal with salt-carrying gales and blown sand; by you using copious amounts of compost and thick mulch to conserve soil moisture.

Sound Barrier - The sound waves passing through the plant interact with leaves and branches, some being deflected and some being turned into heat energy. A wide band of planting is necessary to achieve a large reduction in the decibel level.

Wind Barrier or Windbreak - By planting a natural windbreak you will create a permeable barrier that lets a degree of air movement pass through it and provide shelter by as far as 30 times their height downwind.

Woodland ground cover under the shade of tree canopies.


GROUNDCOVER:-

The plants normally selected by most landscapers and designers are by nature low-growing, rampant, spreading, creep-crawly things and yet the concept of ground cover demands no such thing. The ideal description of a groundcover plant includes:-

  • a bold dense mass of leaves completely covering the ground most of the year; evergreens gain gold stars.
  • They should require little or no maintenance - if you have to give the plant more than its share of attention, you might as well save your money and spend the time weeding.
  • use the plant on ground areas that are difficult to maintain, such as steep banks or boggy patches.
  • use the plant to cover areas where not much will grow, such as deep shade or sandy soils.

Ground Cover a thousand beautiful plants for difficult places by John Cushnie (ISBN 1 85626 326 6) provides details of plants that fulfill the above requirements; as detailed in the pages below:-

Using these groundcover plants in your planting scheme (either between your trees/shrubs in the border or for the whole border) will - with mulching your beds to a 4 inch depth of organic material and an irrigation system - provide you with a planted garden with far less time required for border maintainance.

How to draw and paint leaves and trees for botanical artists and illustrators article by Botanical Art & Artists states:-

  • Tips and techniques for how to draw and paint botanically correct trees and leaves.
  • Drawing and watercolour painting instruction includes step by step demonstrations, videos and books.

Painting leaves: Colour Mixing by Dianne Sutherland botanical artist explains how to colour mix.

 

Quantifying Plant Colour and Colour Difference as Perceived by Humans Using Digital Images by Dave Kendal, Cindy E. Hauser, Georgia E. Garrard, Sacha Jellinek, Katherine M. Giljohann and Joslin L. Moore shows how human perception of plant leaf and flower colour can influence species management. The quality of the camera taking the images affects measurement results and so the same plant can look a different colour depending n which digital camera took the photo.

 

How to read your plants and prevent problems in the Garden by Logan Nickleson shows you the effect on nutrient deficiecies, plant diseases and mineral deficiency on the colour of leaves.

Leaf Plant Anatomy by Encyclopaedia Britannica explains the botany of a leaf.

 

Choosing a colour scheme for your garden by the Bonnie Gardener provides practical advice about colour.

 

As does Using Color in Flower Gardens by Cornell University.

 

The Perfect Cut Flower Guide by Suttons Grow How! provides a wall chart to plan perfect flower arrangements and so you can plant these plants in your garden to provide the flowers at that time.

 

The Psychology of Color by Visual Impact Systems show that different colours evoke different emotions in all of us, so it is important to know what effect what colour is going to have on you and your vistors to the garden.

 

How to design a garden by White Flower Farm states:- The aim of this article is to help you select a site, size, and shape for a flower garden and then to fill it with a harmonious combination of plants. We present this process as a series of steps--seven in all--that takes you from the mere notion that you want a flower garden to a finished plan. If you already have a garden but are not satisfied with it, we suggest that you review the first four steps, then study Steps 5 through 7.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


212 FOLIAGE COLOUR COMPARISON PAGES:-
Click on Colour - NOT THE COLOUR NAME - below to link to its Foliage Page.
The colour palette below is the colour palette of the Mac OS X system color palette. They are the web-safe colours that should display accurately on most colour monitors.
I found websites which voted on what name to call each colour and have used those names with a link to the website that named each colour in 2011.
If the colour name is typed in black; then I have named it.
"
The industry standard in horticulture for years has been the Royal Horticultural Society's or RHS Colour Chart. Unfortunately it does not have enough colors for many genera
and when it can be found in the larger, famous green-boxed edition it's usually US $150-275. At the New Ornamentals Society we use the Pantone Goe System with 2058
different colors and that can be had online (especially ebay) for $70-110. Today we find more than 200 US Plant Patents using the Pantone Goe system instead of the RHS
because of it's greater range of colors and portability as one large fan. Five minutes with the Pantone Goe fan in a diverse garden (we sampled the 6000 taxa at the
Raulston Arboretum and the 11,000 at Juniper Level Botanic Garden of Plant Delights Nursery) and one realizes why this color system is the international standard among
graphic artists, designers, manufacturing planners, architects, marketing consultants, printers, and pretty much every other industry on earth." from the International Coleus Society.
Unfortunately it would take 10 galleries to hold that number of colours and continuation pages; and so I will stick to the web-safe colours as shown below.
