Overview

No variety of plants can contribute as much beauty to a garden - and as much satisfaction to the gardener who knows how to grow them - as roses. In this guide you'll find

• photographs of almost 400 roses, with a quick reference to fragrance, winter hardiness, and disease resistance • every important class of rose - Species Roses, Old Garden Roses, Shrubs, Hybrid Teas, Floribundas, Grandifloras, Miniatures, and Climbers • suggestions for carefree border and ground-cover roses • an encyclopedia entry for each plant, noting its uses and limitations • a pest and disease chart that describes the damage, its cause, and ecologically safe controls.

Whether you want to buy a single carefree bush or maintain a whole garden of perfect roses, this Taylor's Guide has everything you need to know to succeed the first time.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
In the introduction to this updated guide to roses, Nancy Ondra explains that all one needs to produce quality garden roses is "general good garden care." Easier said than done, some might say, but the clear, concise information provided here should make selecting, growing, and caring for roses a delightful and successful undertaking. Like all Taylor's Guides, this one is well organized, has plenty of full-color illustrations, and is an ideal size for portability.
