Flower lovers will enjoy this book. Pamela Shields has brought together stories, rich in anecdote, about the beautiful roses introduced by generations of the Harkness family and the fascinating stories behind the names. Peter Harkness. Hearing a friend tell Peter she had just bought ‘Remembrance’ and listening to Peter telling her the story behind its name inspired this tribute to the Harkness family. There are Harkness roses in over sixty countries including Iceland, Africa, Thailand, Egypt and Iran. They are even in the gardens of Taj Mahal. In 1981 Harkness was invited to supply rosebuds for Lady Diana Spencer’s wedding bouquet and roses to decorate St. Paul’s Cathedral on that memorable day. Many roses are named after Princess Diana but the only one she chose herself was the Harkness rose ‘Princess of Wales’ which was presented to her by Philip and Robert Harkness in April 1997.
