Garden urns have appeared in the formal garden setting since the early Greek & Roman gardens. The interest in garden urns was revived during the Renaissance, as all things ancient became vouge. Englands Earl of Arundel was the first to bring significant quantities of urns back to England in the early 17th century. Not until the discoveries of Herculaneum in 1738 & Pompeii in 1748 did the rage for the urn truly spark. These ancient  forms were also popular in the 19th & 20th centuries.

Use shades of blue to visually cool a sunny space. The Plants: For color throughout the seasons, add variety. Many blue-flowering plants prefer shadier settings, with bulbs being exceptions. Spring showstoppers include columbines, Spanish bluebells, camassias, false indigos, and violas. In summer, long-blooming lavenders, butterfly bushes, and Russian sages are key. You can also get the cooling effect of blue using similar hues of purple and lavender
