"Twentieth-Century Roses" is a companion volume to Peter Beales' "Classic Roses". It contains more than 650 of the outstanding and most readily available modern roses, 450 illustrated in colour photographs. Each rose is individually described, with details of its breeding, size, shape and flowering characters and with instructions on its cultivation. Symbols show at a glance every variety's tolerance of light and shade, of soil conditions and its resistance to disease. Introductory sections describe the history of modern roses generally and how best to plan and prepare for roses in the garden. Peter Beales is one of Britain's foremost rosarians. His commercial collection in Norfolk of classic and modern roses is one of the largest in Britain and he exports roses to many countries worldwide.
