Perhaps the most uncommon color among plants, blue adds a welcome accent to any garden. Noting that blue flowers are more common in high-altitude meadows and stream beds, the author suggests that this may account for their popularity in the cool gardens of northern Europe. This helpful survey is illustrated with more than 150 color photos of blue flowers, in shades from pale lavender to powder blue, from gardens around the world.
The Plant Book for Dumbarton Oaks was prepared as a resource for those charged with maintenance of the gardens following their acquisition by Harvard University in 1941. Beatrix Farrand here explains the reasoning behind her plan for each of the gardens and stipulates how each should be cared for in order that its basic character remain intact. Her resourceful suggestions for alternative plantings, her rigorous strictures concerning pruning and replacement, her exposition of the overall concept that underlies each detail, and the plant lists that accompany her discussion of each garden make this a volume of interest to every student, practitioner, and lover of landscape design.
