Companion Plants
Take Two Plants, by Nicola Ferguson (David & Charles, PLC, 2002; $31) is pretty enough for a coffee table book, but it has an immense amount of information on choosing plants as companions. It is organized by color of blossoms and foliage, something you don't often find. It emphasizes how important foliage is in the color scheme. Best of all, it includes shrubs and vines along with perennials and also specific choices for ornamental fruits, plants for water gardens, and ornamental grasses.
