About this book

The taxonomy of roses has always been very confused and their identification problematical. This book is the result of considerable research by the two authors, and presents the first complete revision of the British roses for over 60 years. Twelve native and eight introduced species are described and illustrated, and 83 hybrids are described. The illustrations show, in each case, fruiting twigs and details of stems, leaves and hips. The 32 distribution maps cover the native species and selected hybrids. Reprinted in 2005 with corrections.
