Sister to Botanica, this lavish 528-page encyclopedia of the rose is the ultimate bouquet for any gardener, weekend or professional. How many gardeners don't like roses? How could anyone dislike a rose? In the immortal words of Gertrude Stein, "A rose is a rose is a rose," and certainly no other flower compares. Botanica's Roses is a comprehensive and fully illustrated reference work featuring stunning photography and authoritative input from such rose experts as Peter Beales, Ken Grapes, and Peter Harkness. Each entry not only gives a detailed description for each rose but includes its lore, history, and romance - not to mention all the care and cultivation information a rose gardener needs. Over 4,000 types of roses are covered in this beautiful hardcover book - the definitive rose-lover's bible.
