Vintage Roses: Beautiful Varieties for Home and Garden (Hardcover)
Romantic blooms for novice, expert, or armchair rose gardeners.
Who wouldn't be romanced by names like Lovely Fairy, Desdemona, Elegantyne, Anne Boleyn, Leonardo da Vinci, and Blue for You? Vintage roses encompass both the true "old" roses and the best of the "modern" roses, developed to celebrate the classic, ageless, enduring beauty of the old varieties.
The 60 specially selected specimens include those that have the best visual appearance and most fragrant perfume, and are also easy to grow and produce beautiful flowers for cutting.
The perfect mix of engaging, inspirational commentary and no-fuss gardening notes shows that roses can be grown and enjoyed by all--whether a novice, an expert, or an armchair rose gardener.
