"What's in a name?
That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet."

~ William Shakespeare,
Romeo and Juliet

THIS big pictorial book of some 200 plus pages is lavishly produced to thrill rose lovers and convert everyday gardeners to the delights of the so-called Queen of Flowers.

A stunning book full of exquisite photographs, it really does justice to the magnificence of roses. With amazing pictures, the book traces the history and culture of this flower and has a memorable collection of poetic quotes.

A great value investment.
