Publisher Comments:

Roses are the unrivaled divas of any garden. In this book, Orietta Sala presents a complete guide to roses that starts by answering that most basic of questions: which rose to plant where? Gardeners who wish to buy, plant, and learn about roses also have unique challenges: What's a good small rose for a small garden? Which roses grow best in balcony planters? I want a large hedge that is always in flower.

These questions and many others are answered with information organized according to the practical needs of cultivation. The roses are divided according to the uses for which they are best suited: roses that climb and rambleroses for beds, borders and hedgesroses for espalier and groundcoverroses for patios and balconies winter-hardy, disease resistant cold-climate roses

Each rose has its own identity card, a description of its unique characteristics and needs. One or more color photographs beautifully depict each flower. Since not all varieties are universally available, suitable alternative selections are given for each rose. This feature greatly widens the already vast selection presented in the book. Suggestions are made for roses or other flowers that make harmonizing garden companions.

Roses is a richly detailed handbook offering much-needed information to novice and seasoned gardeners alike.
