A Perfect Match

The other day as I was wandering through the garden I noticed this calla lily (whose name escapes me) that has come up in the middle of a sprawling shrub of lobelia laxifloria. They have the exact same coloring and are perfect compliments to each other with the lobelia having small leaves and flowers and the calla lily having large, variegated leaves and dynamic flowers. One of the nicest things about having large gardens is being able to play around with colors that I never would use as my first choice for a garden bed, such as red and yellow!
