In­cor­po­rate some marsala into your home this fall

Alberta Gardener Magazine - - Local Dirt -

This is the year of marsala, a deep and sul­try red with brown and blue un­der­tones. If you weren’t se­duced to pur­chase plants this sum­mer in this rich and com­fort­ing tone, why not try it in­doors as the weather cools? Marsala is warm and wel­com­ing. When it’s paired with con­trast­ing bold colour ac­cents such as lime green, it can cre­ate stun­ning ar­range­ments.

For a fes­tive feel­ing, try mix­ing Color­blaze Ma­rooned Coleus, Charmed Wine Ox­alis or Red Rid­ing Hood Pur­ple Foun­tain Grass in with your decor for the hol­i­days. Add some nat­u­ral items such as drift­wood, rus­tic ac­cents such as sleigh bells, can­dles and sea­sonal ever­green boughs on a man­tle or as a ta­ble cen­tre­piece for en­ter­tain­ing. And don't for­get the wine!
