Although many gardeners have given up on growing roses, consummate gardener Marilyn Raff believe that anyone can cultivate a beautiful, thriving rose garden. Despite their negative reputation--that roses are high maintenance plants, that they have to be sprayed, are hard to prune, get various diseases, and eventually succumb to the cold of winter--Raff states that bleak outlook on gardening roses is only true of the fussier roses, such as Hybrid Teas and Floribundas. The aim of Shrub Roses is to introduce low maintenance roses to match any garden situation, any lifestyle, and any climate to both the novice and expert gardener. With her engaging style, Raff shares a passion and joy in roses that is unmatched in other gardening guides. The myths, legends, and history of roses are interspersed with practical advice on how to grow your rose garden today. With very little technical jargon, this book is sure to become an indispensable and well-loved part of any gardener's collection.
