The universal standard work on the subject of roses, this is a unique compendium, which introduces readers to the fascinating world of this most noble flower, and with more than 4,000 cultivated roses and the most important wild roses, portrays the rose in all its wonderful variety. The contents include: How to use this book; Introduction; Beginnings of rose cultivation; Cultivating roses; Wild roses; Garden roses from A-Z; All roses in overview; Portraits of rose breeders; Specialized vocabulary; Bibliography; and Index. The rose is the most popular and most often cultivated flower throughout the entire world. Today roses are grown in every country, even where the climate is hardly suitable for them. They are found in cold temperate zones and the sub-tropics - and to some extent even in the Tropics. There are roses for every purpose and for every location in the garden, whether alongside walls, as espaliers or trees, or on terraces in containers or boxes - their beauty and charm is welcome everywhere. There is no other flower that has received so much attention from horticulturalists, and thus countless new and different types have been created.In light of the numerous species and the special qualities of the rose, it was high time for a book such as "The Encyclopedia of Roses" to provide an orderly overview. The selection of the varieties and their descriptions are the work of a team of leading experts, and the accompanying photographs are of the very highest quality. This volume is a well-grounded reference work for rose aficionados and hobby gardeners, as well as a sure guide for enthusiastic beginners through the confusing multitude of names, synonyms and codes to just the right rose. The descriptions of each unique variety include detailed information about its shape, colour, growth and blossoming, complemented by interesting facts about the discovery and naming of individual species. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

A beautiful and useful book nonetheless. I would still go out and buy it if I didn't already have it.
The list of contributors reads like an all-star team of rosarians from around the world: Peter Beales - UK (on Wild Roses), Dr. Tommy Cairns - USA(Introduction), Walter Duncan - Australia, Gwen Fagan - South Africa, William Grant - USA, Ken Grapes - UK (on Cultivating Roses), Peter Harkness - UK, Kevin Hughes - Australia, John Mattock - UK (on The Rose and Its Heritage), and David Ruston - Australia.
Second only to a good pair of pruners, Botanica's Roses should be considered a must-have by all rose lovers.

It is beautifully written and the photos--pure eye candy! I adore roses so it was like giving a gourmet dinner to a starving person.
Those are the good points. I only have 2 nit-pickies that are hardly worth mentioning because I ADORE this book and recommend it 100% to any and all garden lovers. 1) The Cd-Rom tweeked on my computer--probably because I have version Windows ME..., 2) on the rose descriptions they forgot to share how big the roses would get. They used words like " a medium shrub". I figured that they meant about 5 feet but if you dont know roses its a necessary tid-bit.
So there. if you are unsure of spending the hefty sum on this book, don't think twice...BUY IT TODAY--And BTW Amazon has it the cheapest. GO ROSE HAPPY!! Do it...you won't be sorry.
It has lot of information and wonderful pictures of roses and if you are a rose lover, you will love this book! It could be a great gift too and it's huge!
