Colour scheme - what goes with red geraniums (pelargoniums)?

15 years ago

Just posted this in the annuals forum, but this might be a better place........

I'd like to do a red-and-? colour scheme this year. I'll be using red geraniums. What are good companions for these? Ideally, I'd like something lower growing (no larger than geraniums) but I'm open to anything.

As for the colour, I don't want white. I love salmon, but how will that look with red? I also thought of yellows, and I saw nice orange Coleus that I could use in a partly shady area.

The area is full sun, well-drained, sandy soil. We have a sprinkler system, so dryness will not be a problem. There is one area under a crabapple that is part shade.
