In the constant search for new varieties, the unchanging virtues of old fashioned roses have too often been lost. But no longer: today's more discriminating gardeners are once again aware of their unrivalled beauty of form, their quieter colours and delicate perfume, their landscaping versatility, and old fashioned roses are resuming their rightful place in gardeners' affections. In this new Cassell Monograph the authors review the history of the older roses, describe the various types available and illustrate more than 100 favourite varieties in colour, with full horticultural information on each. This is a reference book of especial value to the gardener looking to restore an old fashioned elegance to his rose gardens.Read Less
