Planting in multiples makes for a showier garden. ‘Gumdrop’ gardens (one of everything) can cause indigestion. Odd number groupings (three, five, seven) create more natural, flowing impressions than using a lot of even numbers. In general, the smaller a plant’s size, the more you need to generate the coveted ‘oohhhh’ reaction.
