Red gets your attention. It promotes action and activity, so you will find that many companies use red in their logos and designs. It can also signify danger. A good use of red as an accent can immediately focus attention on a particular element.

Like many colors, red also has its fair share of both positive and negative connotations:

Positives include: love (red roses and red hearts), passion (red-blooded), sexiness – (red lipstick, red sports cars) and festivity (Christmas, Santa Claus)

Negatives include: war, revolution and anarchy (red flag), danger (stop signs, traffic lights, and fire)

Red is considered a warm color in landscape design. Its appearance in the garden has an energetic effect and of course is the complementary colour to the green in a garden
