The entire garden is much like a rainbow land where purple flowers can be spotted to the north of the house; red to the east; pink to the south; and multihued in the west-facing rose garden.

According to Peter Marino yellow flowers when mixed with any other colour than green they look cheap, so he keeps them in a separate spot.
