"Climbing Roses of the World presents climbers of every type, from the parent Rosa species to the Multifloras, Noisettes, and modern climbers, to name just a few. Charles Quest-Ritson discusses the historical development of the various types of climbing roses as well as individual breeders and how fashion, political events, and even favourite holiday destinations influenced their work. He provides original horticultural names and synonyms for nearly 1600 climbing roses and describes their habit, flowers, foliage, hardiness, and vigour. Gardeners throughout the world will value the book's detailed information on blooming times, changes in flowers over the course of a season, and the adaptability of different roses to different climates."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
