Chocolate Brown Gardening

Using Chocolate Brown plants in your garden with Sensible Gardening

Not the most usual colour in plants, brown adds a touch of mystery to the flower bed. Normally a rather unassuming colour, brown in flowers and foliage stands out when grown among the brighter tones in the garden border. It almost adds a touch of class to plantings and a sense of style to containers.

The slightly unusual always draws us in, and brown flowers and leaves are no exception. Would I like an all brown garden, probably not. I prefer these tones to be given specific placement in the garden for the element of surprise and wow factor. Finding brown plants will take a bit of looking but they are out there. Below are some I’ve come across, some of which might work for you.
