Why does everyone love a rose and what does it offer that other flowers lack? This question was poised to 32 eminent gardeners, who provide their highly original and engaging responses in this book. Includes: Michael Pollan, Thomas C. Cooper, Lauren Springer, Julie Moir Messervy, Christopher Lloyd and Dan Hinkley. Their essays are rich with reminiscence, with prejudice, and with love remembered or recently experienced. Many offer fascinating historical info. or valuable tips on culture. (includes recipes using rose petals.) All of them, whether with new passion or grudging admiration, celebrate the rose, a flower that has been treasured since prehistory and that is reinvented in every generation. Illus. in vibrant watercolors. A handsome gift for any gardener!
