Flippable, flexible, and comprehensive, this garden's version of The Color Book (over 100,000 copies sold!) is a must-have for gardeners with an eye for the big picture. Presented in the same interactive format as its popular predecessor, The Garden Color Book includes over 600 photographs of individual plants— displayed horizontally in swatches by color—that let you flip back and forth, mixing and matching until you find the perfect color scheme. By showing what color blossoms a bulb or shrub will have when in bloom, this indispensable gardening reference allows you to imagine how a summer plot might look planted with a sea of flame red penstemon accented by some sky blue salvias or a spring border of lime green euphorbia. With concise plant profiles covering propagation and bloom, as well as season and zone information, and more than 340,000 combinations, gardener's will be sure to find their ideal garden color palette—before putting trowel to earth.

Review:

The colors alone are enough to guarantee this book being a favorite for any flower enthusiast with a green thumb. The Garden Color Book is a feast for both the eyes and the imagination, and it's unique flip-book style (lifted from those mix-and-match children's picture books) make the possible combinations seem endless. While you'll be eager to skip ahead and get right into playing with the page strips, there's some important information in the beginning, including the key code for the various needs of each plant, zone hardiness, light and water requirements, and special concerns. So once you've paid your dues, let the fun begin! Each page of plants is cut into three horizontal strips, one level each for tall, medium, and short plants, and then separated into color groupings--the vivid indigos, bright oranges, and cool silver foliage are photographed beautifully, shown off to perfection with clear close ups. The back of each preceding strip contains squares of information about each plant, so as you're admiring, you merely have to glance to the left to learn whether it's appropriate for your space and conditions. With a clear plastic cover and sturdy spiral binding, this is a book to take outside with you, or pass around the garden club for group inspiration. --Jill Lightner
