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.
