Separate hot-color garden, an enclosed space that vibrates with combinations of orange, red, strong yellow, vermilion, and purple. Illustrated by the stunning photography of Dency Kane, The Flamboyant Garden is designed for those who love flaming colors but have been unable to successfully incorporate them into their refined pastel borders. Though her own New York State garden is in the somewhat chilly Zone 5, Sheldon also offers advice for gardeners in climates that are.
Warmer and therefore even better suited to these hot-color varieties. With useful suggestions for formal design, for building materials that enhance the flowers' colors, and for balancing color combinations - as well as a master plant list comprised of perennials, bulbs and tubers, annuals, and vines and shrubs - Sheldon will help you enliven your garden with a distinctly American style.
