Revised and updated, a complete guide to creating color effects in the garden

Andrew Lawson has an artist’s eye, a scientist’s training, and long experience as both a gardener and a photographer of gardens. In this book he calls on all his skills and practical knowledge to illuminate the complex subject of using color in the garden and to demonstrate the extraordinary power of color to change the sense of space, to suggest coolness or warmth, and to evoke different moods. The Gardener’s Book of Colour shows how to put colors together in garden beds, borders, and containers, explaining how to construct harmonizing and contrasting schemes and exuberant displays of mixed color. All the major schemes are supported by keyline drawings giving full planting details. In addition, illustrated plant directories, arranged by color and flowering season, provide cultivation details for more than 850 plants, enabling you to assemble the right plants for your chosen scheme and to carry that scheme through the year. Authoritative and accessible, The Gardener’s Book of Colour will stimulate your imagination and put exciting new ideas within your grasp. Whether you want an instant splash of brilliant seasonal color or a sumptuous border with subtle year-round appeal, this book will show you how to achieve it.
Andrew Lawson is one of the world’s leading garden photographers, a painter, a passionate and knowledgeable gardener, and an engaging garden writer. He is the author of six books including Plants for All Seasons. In 1993 he was awarded the Royal Horticultural Society’s Gold Medal for Photographers.
