The New Plant Library

A partial synopsis from Good Reads: Everything you need to know about old roses...
|A photo from my garden, this beauty is a climbing Queen Elizabeth.|
My Thoughts: I think roses represent something for each of us, especially the old fragrant ones. Pink ones remind me of my Great Aunt Drue as she grew them along the fence outside her living room windows. Yellow roses were my Daddy's favorite. White and champagne ones made up my wedding bouquet. This lovely little book has a guide to rose varieties along with lots of tips for planting and care.
What is your favorite rose? Does it bring back a specific memory?
