Received an email from this lady, and her books look tempting. Anyone who wishes to build black/purple or golden foliaged plants into their garden vocabulary might take a look for her books. I am curious , myself.
For those in Seattle, she says she has a book signing:
“I am at the Seattle flower Show on 4th Feb 2004 speaking about color in thegarden and signing my new book”
Which is coming right up……
