Publisher Comments:

Renowned garden artist Keeyla Meadows sees the world in strong, saturated shades. Fearless Color Gardens brings this unique vision to life by showing how to use wild, uninhibited color to connect indoor and outdoor spaces and turn a garden into a work of art.

Learn how to pick colors that work together; how to coordinate the colors of walls, benches, containers, and garden art; how to organize garden spaces through the use of color; and how to translate personal color preferences into tangible form in the garden. Fearless Color Gardens also features a new way of looking at color with "Keeyla's Color Triangle"; easy-to use tips on growing edibles in color themed gardens; and Keeyla's favorite plants for specific colors.

In the end, readers will want to reinvent the staid rules of the color wheel and turn their color preferences into intoxicatingly vibrant garden expressions.

Synopsis:

Demonstrates how to apply uninhibited plant colors to connect indoor and outdoor spaces while transforming a garden into an artistic site, counseling readers on such topics as color-coordinating plants with their surroundings, creating themed gardens and caring for edible plants.
