About this title


Quarto, , PP.224, The Brooklyn Botanic Gardens Guide To OUr National Flower

From Library Journal:

Although officially recognized as the national flower of the United States in 1986, the rose has been an American favorite since the 1600s. In this beautifully illustrated book, Scanniello, the rosarian of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and writer Bayard show how simple growing roses can be. They showcase the Cranford Rose Garden and discuss the search for the perfect rose suitable for all climates and soil conditions of the United States. They also cover the techniques of selecting, growing, pruning, and fertilizing roses, and provide details on how new hybrids are created. Concluding with a list of over 400 public rose gardens, the authors also name organizations and publications devoted to the rose. Recommended for most gardening collections.
