Colour Garden - Red by Elvin McDonald

The "Colour Garden Series" explores the possibilities of tint, tone and hue. Each of the four volumes presents the most effective and aesthetic uses for a specific colour theme and supplies detailed plant lists for each, along with cultivation instructions and blooming periods. Focusing on the red family of flowers and plants, this text presents the fiery shades of vibrant scarlet and salmon to the cool cerise of cistus and velvety tea roses of the palest pink. Organized into chapters on beds and borders, containers, roses, foliage and fruit, and finishing with a section on complementary colour schemes, this book offers a palette of ideas for anyone who wants to create a garden with impact.
