5.0 out of 5 stars INFORMATIVE, COMPREHENSIVE--A GREAT GIFT!
I was drawn to this book by the stunning pictures of roses and rose gardens. However, it is the wealth of valuable information on EVERY aspect of roses that make this one of my all-time favorite gardening books.
This book would make an excellent present for the neophyte and expert gardener alike. The author's passion is contagious. A great read and highly...

3.0 out of 5 stars More for the rich than the poor
Beautiful American Rose Gardens is a good but not a great book because too many of the rose gardens discussed in this book are too large (acres and acres). The pictures are wonderful and descriptions are well written and I recommend that rose lovers read this book. However, the book doesn't give enough detail into how a reader can create their own rose gardens,...

Beautiful American Rose Gardens is a good but not a great book because too many of the rose gardens discussed in this book are too large (acres and acres). The pictures are wonderful and descriptions are well written and I recommend that rose lovers read this book. However, the book doesn't give enough detail into how a reader can create their own rose gardens, especially if they are not professional rosarians or wealthy enough to afford professional gardners. Most of the gardens in this book are owned by rose retailers or rich or famous people like Bob Hope.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Landscape Architect reference, April 9, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Beautiful American Rose Gardens (Hardcover)
Rose gardens are a real specialty type garden that not all people know about. As a landscape architect, I know design, and most plant requirements, however roses were not covered at university. This is a great book that goes beyond beginner gardens and serves as a great reference for professionals and advanced gardeners. A great addition to our library.
