Seasonal color beds are landscaped flower beds, container groupings, or a single large container installed with annual flowers or foliage. Exterior holiday decorations such as Halloween blow-ups, Thanksgiving pumpkins, and Christmas lights also fall into the category of seasonal color installation. Typically two to three times a year, seasonal color installations are updated with seasonally appropriate bedding plants. In some landscape installations, perennials, shrubs, and specimen trees often share space with seasonal color. During change-outs, only the annuals are removed and updated, the other plant materials remain. Color beds can be planted in either shade or full sun as long as site-specific plants are used.
