Naming The Rose : Discovering who roses are named for . Roger Mann ; photography by Yvonne Arnold and Paul Barden

The rose brings beauty and joy to those who grow and admire them. Often a rose will bear a person's name, for the breeding of roses is an art and, like all artists, the raisers of roses enjoy dedicating their creations to people they love or admire.

But who was Madame Hardy? Bettina? Lorraine Lee or Henri Martin? Vita Sackville-West asked this question many years ago and rose-lovers are still asking.

Here, at last, in an elegant, timeless and beautifully illustrated edition, is the answer.

Anyone who loves these delightful flowers will find this collection of stories as beautiful as the bloom itself.
