About the Author
Ann Chapman and her husband established Trinity Farm Living Rose Museum in New Zealand more than 20 years ago. The museum displays more than 1,500 old roses in three acres of garden. Finding and growing old roses has become an obsession and the collection is now of international status. Ann has for some time wondered about the people behind the roses and this book is the culmination of many years of research.
Reviews
"This beautifully illustrated book is a wonderful read, skilfully combining detailed rose descriptions with fascinating accounts about each rose's historical namesake." --David Austin, David Austin Roses
"From the seductive Empress Josephine to the intrepid Grace Darling, Chapman profiles women who have made a significant contribution to history as well as horticulture. Accompanied by drop-dead-gorgeous photographs, each flower's provenance and cultural requirements are briefly offered to further encourage rose aficionados to include these sumptuous, significant treasures in their gardens." --Booklist
