Great book, with lots of pix that provide lots of ideas/inspiration on how to maximize plant location based on color. Also, a very easy to understand dissertation on color wheel and color theory. I was not familiar with many of the plants mentioned, but since author is very meticulous with nomenclature, it will be easy to cross-reference. I suspect I will have to find alternates to suit my z9 landscape. Highly recommend this book.
Pamela Harper has the ability to teach us all to look at a flower and find secondary colors and how to match each plant, flower, etc. to the next, creating harmony in the garden. By her example she has changed the way I garden. She gives latin and common names and shares her lifetime experiences, mistakes and successes with us. The photographs are hers and her husband's work. A great bedside book. Even just a chapter a night is enlightening and entertaining. She is the Julia Child of gardening.
