An incredible encyclopedic reference of old garden roses and species roses. Has an entry for just about every OGR available on the market today. Entries are arranged by taxonomy. Many lovely pictures. There are chapters on the history of rose breeding, and using roses in the landscape as well. Very informative for anyone choosing classic roses for their garden.

An excellent book. I'm borrowing a copy from our local library, but I may wind up buying it!
