Here, at last, is a book on gardening with color by its most adventurous exponent, Christopher Lloyd. Color for Adventurous Gardeners is about using color for maximum impact.

Previous books on gardening with color have treated each color as a separate entity, but, in fact, colors work with and against each other, and must be viewed as relationships. This is the first book on gardening with color that explores how to make successful color associations with plants. Yes, there are color rules, but you have to know when and how to break them.

Offering expert views based on his many years of experience, Christopher Lloyd explores each color and encourages readers to be adventurous and daring. "The limitations imposed by rules," he writes, "are a safe-haven, but the adventurous gardener will want to try something different."

Color for Adventurous Gardeners includes over 200 stunning photographs throughout its 11 chapters, each followed by a recommended plant list:

Red - Nothing to Fear Challenging Orange True Blues are Few The Value of Mauve Enigmatic Green Broken White Cheerful Yellow The Truth about Pink Sunlit Purple Brown Studies Sophisticated Black

Informative and inspiring photographs by Jonathan Buckley illustrate Lloyd's colorful writing on a colorful subject, making Color for Adventurous Gardeners both a visual feast and an entertaining read.
