Bring the dazzling beauty and year-round bloom of the Winterthur Garden to your home landscape. Henry Francis du Pont devoted some seventy years to fashioning his world-renowned creation. In The Winterthur Guide to Color in Your Garden, author Ruth Joyce highlights the design principles that guided du Pont and describes how to achieve these stunning effects. Practical plants that have stood the test of time - native and non-native, common and unusual - are introduced month by month, grouped as they appear in the Winterthur landscape. Such an organization illuminates radiant and unusual color combinations as well as the wide variety of wildflowers and genera that bloom throughout the estate. The Quarry Garden, Glade Garden, and container plants at the Reflecting Pool are all included in this indispensable guide to creating a color-filled landscape of your own.
