Description

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.
