The guide to creating a NEW generation of American roses . . .

This work brings together experts from around the world to inform gardeners about developments in the new-irresistible yet long overdue-trend toward creating environmentally friendly yet enduring rose gardens, with "sustainability" as the key.

Pick up any popular gardening magazine and browse through it. Chances are you will soon encounter one word-"sustainability." Sustainability has, indeed, become the catchword of 21st century gardening. And for tens of millions of environmentally conscious gardeners it has become a "must" goal, rapidly being realized as part of the much heralded NEW GARDENING. This means gardening that is consciously aware of the dangerous health and environmental risks posed by using traditional synthetic chemicals and pesticides, and that seeks to return to the principles of Mother Nature, while also growing low-maintenance plants that make fewer demands on environmental resources.

The Queen of Flowers, the rose-by Presidential declaration America's National Floral Emblem-was initially left behind as "green consciousness" and the concept of sustainability took hold among the gardening public. But the rose is now making up for lost time. From the workshops of breeders-both in the U.S. and abroad-a new generation of disease-resistant and low-maintenance rose varieties has emerged in the last decade to fill popular demand.

In this book, you will learn how to make your own sustainable rose garden. With 38 lavishly illustrated articles and descriptions of the best new (as well as old) rose varieties designed for the sustainable rose garden, this is a must-have book for today's new generation of avid but environmentally conscious gardeners.
