The Gardener's Color Palette: Paint Your Garden with 100 Extraordinary Flower Choices
Choosing color is one of the most delightful and personal choices a gardener makes. For one gardener, the shock of a garden full of pink and red is a picture of beauty. For another, white flowers may be more tranquilly inspiring.
The Gardener's Color Palette features ten plants in ten color groups and offers gardeners hundreds of opportunities to mix and match. Want a red garden? Choose the 'Crimson Star' columbine, the 'Lucifer' crocosmia, and the 'Gardenview Scarlet' bee balm. For a metallic garden plant the Japanese cobra lily, the Chocolate cosmos, and the Kamchatka fritillary. Or, create a multicolored array by picking plants from each category. Plant profiles include a description, the common and botanical names, information about expected height and spread, bloom time, hardiness, and light and water requirements.
Combined with Clive Nichols' stunning photographs, The Gardener's Color Palette is an invaluable source of practical advice and visual inspiration.
