Editorial Reviews

Daytona Beach News-Journal
Some of the easiest roses to grow in Volusia and Flagler counties are "old-garden" roses. That's why William Welch's 1990 classic, Antique Roses for the South remains timeless for anybody interested in the subject.
The Houston Chronicle
...[a] fantastic new book.

Dallas Morning News
An antique rose is more than just an old rose. It's the Rambo of the flower world. To learn more, [Antique Roses for the South] is a helpful area resource.
The News and Advance (Lynchburg) - Don Davis
An excellent choice for novice rose growers.
Horticulture
Antique Roses for the South is wrought from experience. It is meant to alleviate the frustrations southerners feel when they try to figure out which old roses will grow well in the hotlands. A useful book.
Fine Gardening - Harriet Jansma
This book will be helpful to rose lovers in the lower South and possibly in the milder parts of the Atlantic and Pacific coasts. It will also delight all garden dreamers with its color photographs or roses growing in many landscape settings, which demonstrate the great variety of the genus and the beauty of its many forms. I recommend this beautiful book for its information and its inspiration. Every gardener needs both. The volume itself will ornament the house until the first rose bud opens.
Carolina Gardener
This book contains a wealth of information for growers interested in cultivating antique roses.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution - Mark Stith
Antique Roses for the South is a treasure made even more valuable considering the challenge. When you write a book about roses, something will be lost in the translation. It certainly won't smell or look as good as the real things. Given that handicap, Dr. Welch does a superb job of telling about the history, culture and preservation of old roses that have stood the test of time in the hot and humid South.
Southern Living - Steve Bender
Antique Roses for the South is a top-notch work of interest both to rose collectors and those who simply wonder what that sweet-smelling rose was that grew by Grandma's porch.
Silive.com - Dan Gill
...an invaluable resource...a wealth of information...a comprehensive dictionary of more than 100 antique roses with detailed descriptions.
Sun Herald, (Ms) - Pam Firmin
If you've never smelled an antique rose and think you never will, here's a book that could change your mind...sure to provide welcome insight and ideas for anyone already enamored and just as sure to tempt and intrigue those who don't know them yet.
