Amazon.com description: Product Description:

Romantic blooms for novice, expert, or armchair rose gardeners.

Who wouldn’t be romanced by names like Lovely Fairy, Desdemona, Elegantyne, Anne Boleyn, Leonardo da Vinci, and Blue for You? Vintage roses encompass both the true “old” roses and the best of the “modern” roses, developed to celebrate the classic, ageless, enduring beauty of the old varieties.

The 60 specially selected specimens include those that have the best visual appearance and most fragrant perfume, and are also easy to grow and produce beautiful flowers for cutting.

The perfect mix of engaging, inspirational commentary and no-fuss gardening notes shows that roses can be grown and enjoyed by all―whether a novice, an expert, or an armchair rose gardener.

Jane Eastoe's previous books include Elizabeth: Reigning in Style, Fabulous Frocks, and a series of guidebooks for The National Trust (UK) on everything budding homesteaders need to know, from Henkeeping to Home-Grown Fruit.

Georgianna Lane is a leading floral, garden, and travel photographer whose work has been published internationally in such magazines as The New Yorker, BBC Gardens Illustrated, Britain magazine, Romantic Homes, and Gardener’s World (UK).
