Item description for Old Roses (Gardens by Design) by Graham Murphy...
This series of books celebrates some of the most beautiful, oldest, and well-loved flowers. Each book in the series looks at a different theme, and through images by leading flower photographers, reveals overlooked cultivars or rare species. Before looking at over 30 different species, each book investigates the plant in history, art, perfume, and medicine. Practical information is also included in each book, from pruning and plantings to suppliers' contact information. The passion for roses has been with us for centuries, ranging from the time of the ancient Persians. Old Roses is a beautifully illustrated guide to 33 classic varieties.
