"Meadows' book, lavishly illustrated with her own photographs, offers basic guidelines for designing with color: pick a principal color, then work with harmonious and contrasting shades." --San Francisco Chronicle

"Reads like a colorist's memoir, complete with a muse named Emerald. Strong on fantasy, it's also a useful workbook for garden owners who need a nudge toward the more vibrant end of the color spectrum." --Los Angeles Times

"One of the most visually inspired gardening books I've enjoyed in a long time." --Northern Gardener

"If you're shy about using color, this is the book for you, because Meadows hasn't met a shade, tone, or hue she couldn't put to clever use." --The Seattle Times

"Meadows is a cheerleader for gardens full of color, and of gardeners unafraid to push their boundaries." --Bloomingwriter Blog

"The book jacket's eye-popping colors are just a prelude to the lush photos that lie within." --Detroit Free Press
