Season by season, Monet's Garden charts the splendor of the world-renowned garden Monet cultivated and then translated into more than 500 paintings. Here is a unique and visionary portrait of one of the most frequently visited places in all of France.
Starting with the story of how Monet acquired and transformed the land, author Vivian Russell details the history of the garden and traces the development of Monet as an artist and gardener. She presents a vivid account of the evolution of Giverny, with insights from the people who restored the garden to its former glory, as well as from its current caretakers.

I was looking for good artistic reference for gardens rather than individual flowers and this is the most useful I've found so far. Monet focused on having informal gardens and you can see in the photos how he chose to select and layer the colours and species of flowers to flow naturally, very much like his paintings. It gives a gorgeous overview of Monet's home gardens as well as talking about the inspirations and history to it. Really interesting even to just flip through.
