Tried and true varieties for tropical Florida

Contrary
to common belief, many varieties of roses can
flourish in Florida's heat and humidity. A much-needed guide for both home
gardeners and landscape professionals, 100
Roses for the South Florida Garden
equips readers with the knowledge to
successfully grow this popular plant in the state's tropical climate.

Rose connoisseur Victor Lazzari surveys
the history of the rose; outlines the main classifications of roses; explains
how to best cultivate the flower in the South Florida environment; and offers
advice on designing thoughtful, eco-friendly, visually spectacular gardens with
roses in this region. Lazzari then provides an illustrated compendium of 100
varieties of roses that work well in South Florida. Each entry contains a beautiful
full-color photograph, a brief history of the rose variety, and notes on the
variety's preferences.
Complete
with a thorough list of local rose retailers and organizations, this book is
filled with useful information that has previously been difficult for Florida
residents to locate. New gardeners and dedicated rosarians alike will delight
in this approachable, eye-catching resource for finding and growing roses that thrive
in the southernmost part of the state.
