From Gertrude Jekyll and the Country House Garden. She was the gardener who popularized the informal, naturalistic look that we identify with English country gardens today.

Cothay Manor, UK - love the topiary either side of the entrance with the contrasting lavender spilling over the path.

Gertrude Jekyll was a brilliant English garden designer. She was a master at applying color theory to the composition of gardens. I have this book by Richard Bisgrove, where he has combed through thousands of her plans (there are very few remaining Jekyll gardens as she passed away in 1932) and reinterpreted them. Here are just a few examples of how you can plan out beautiful color combinations in your garden.
