Initial post 8 MAY 09 by Allison
A gorgeously illustrated practical guide to over 1,000 roses, as well as an account of the history of the rose. Not only accounts for the rose in history and art, but follows the authors to China while searching for the ancestors of our modern roses, in particular, the famous 4 "stud" Chinas which gave rise to our modern repeat-blooming roses. The practical guide is both highly informative and covers a wide range of roses--from species, old garden roses, to modern and English roses. I highly reccomend seeking this volume out for your library.
