Overview

Gardeners in Texas and the South face their own special problems with climate and growing seasons, and they need a guide written specifically for the region in order to have the greatest chance of success. William C. Welch’s Perennial Garden Color directly fills this need, and for years gardeners have relied on this book to aid their efforts to beautify their outdoor spaces. Now in a new Texas A&M University Press edition, this time-tested classic, dubbed a “masterpiece” by Neil Sperry, is available again.

Lavishly illustrated with more than five hundred breathtaking color photographs, Perennial Garden Color provides detailed information on planting and growing 125 different perennials and their companion plants. Also included are more than a hundred varieties of old garden roses, together with comments on their history and uses.

Welch, a veteran horticulturist and writer, goes beyond detailing individual flowers, however, to emphasize their use in landscape design. He illustrates how to harmonize the color, texture, and shape of perennials, old roses, and companion plants to create an overall effect of grace and elegance. The dozens of photographs of landscape designs offer a wealth of ideas and inspiration.

Focusing special attention on cottage gardens, Welch offers a history of this traditional design and provides the information needed for gardeners to make this style their own.

Written with contagious enthusiasm, Perennial Garden Color is a complete, comprehensive, and authoritative guide to planning and growing a beautiful and colorful garden of perennials in the South.

Editorial Reviews

Wfaa.Com - Marianna Green
listed in booklist
Dallas Morning News - Marsha Murray Harlow
[Perennial Garden Color] offers many photos and plant descriptions, plus an extensive segment on old garden roses and companion plants. Photos of formal and informal designs offer inspiration for home gardeners.
Fort Worth Star-Telegram - Carol Nuckols
Consider this: A plant that produces beautiful flowers, survives the extremes of Texas weather to live for years (or even decades), doesn't require a lot of pampering and multiplies itself. Now wonder there's a renewed interest in perennials.
Southern Living - Lois Chaplin
If you could have only one book about perennials in the South, this is the one. It includes pertinent cultural information as well as handsome pictures for identification and inspiration.
Austin American Statesman - Dr. Calvin finch
Perennial Garden Color has great photos and is especially good at relating the old fashioned plants such as antique roses and bulbs to the modern landscape... a good resource and a good read.
The Shreveport Times - Margaret Martin
Perennial Garden Color is a comprehensive work on perennials, old garden roses and the the cottage gardening concept in Texas and the South.
