Booklist Review

Thomas--an English gardener, rose authority, and author (The Complete Flower Paintings & Drawings of Graham Stuart Thomas [BKL N 1 87])--shows how to integrate roses into the garden landscape. The blooming cycle of these plants and their various habits of growth can present problems when gardeners try to combine them with perennials, annuals, and other shrubs. Using the gardens he designed at Mottisfont Abbey in England as examples, Thomas illustrates how color, form, and flowering patterns can extend the season and provide an attractive setting for the rose's beauty. Since many of Thomas' selections are of old rose varieties, this volume will prove to be a useful accessory to Griffith's Celebration of Old Roses [BKL Mr 1 91]. A sequence of stunning color photographs illustrates the uses of roses in mixed borders and in plantings devoted to roses alone. List of companion plants appended. ~--John Brosnahan
