Roses: Beautiful Varieties for Home and Garden

Jane Eastoe & Georgianna Lane

Description

The origin of roses is shrouded in mystery. Fossilised species of roses have been found across the northern hemisphere and are estimated to date back some 35–40 million years. The remarkable beauty, fragrance and usefulness of the rose have guaranteed its spread right across the globe. Throughout the years, its potent power has come to symbolise many things, but above all, the rose is a plant to be enjoyed and wondered at.

Roses focuses on the classic, ageless and enduring flower that straddles garden friendly modernity whilst also celebrating the style and grace of the old. Ranging from overblown, multi-petalled or deliciously simple and delicate, the book rightly extols these beautiful blooms, and includes hands-on know-how and history of the world's favourite flower.

With 45 species of rose included, explore the flowers with the best visual appearance, most fragrant perfume, the easiest to grow and those ideal for cutting beautiful flowers from.
