Book Summary:

Writing with enormous enthusiasm about the creation of her garden and the challenge of finding suitable plants, the author explains how good foliage, form and other characteristics are considerations as important as color and flowering season. There are chapters on moisture conservation and soil improvement as well as plant grouping and design in the dry garden. The author offers planting schemes and plans for borders to provide interest from earliest spring until winter. Thomas Fischer's introduction to this new edition provides a fascinating perspective of Chatto's influence on the way we garden today. His revision of the plant index makes it far more useful for North American gardeners.

Book Summary:

A design-focused, easy-to-use guide to colorful, eye-catching foliage and flowers for your whole yard, from the ground plane to the canopy, for homeowners and landscapers faced with replacing thirsty gardens in California and other dry regions in the Western US. If readers must reluctantly remove water-guzzling favorites from the garden, they need equally beautiful substitutes! This book is a visual treat that supports the transition to dry gardening by proving that gardeners can have all the gorgeous color and flowers they had in the past using just a fraction of the water. Maureen Gilmer provides chapters on design categories of plants—flowering shrubs, the ground plain, eye-catching accents, ephemeral flowers, perennials for color, animated plants and fine textures, canopy, and edibles—with profiles for each plant plus background info and top picks lists. The Colorful Dry Garden is unique because it features only bold plants that are also heavy bloomers despite heat and limited water. It also features more than just Western native plants by including varieties from the world's driest climates.
